Artist’s notes: This piece began as an exercise of juxtaposition, by taking colloquialisms, news headlines and visuals, and mixing them together to create imagery. The expression “my ‘merica” was a catalyst in the creation of this piece, as I tried to imagine how contemporary America could be portrayed and understood in the world. It became a response to the constant news headlines and media stories in the US: gun control, school shootings, weight loss, obesity and fast food culture.
