[Artist’s Statement: I’m having a dialogue with these old ads, mostly from the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. I want to marry a bit of poetry with the dogs of commerce. After I alter the text, I sense the ads need a place to be, a place to live in their next incarnation, so I often put them on (my photo of) a wall. Then I add other graphic bits and refine to my own purposes all that had been in the vast before.]
