Artist Statement

The canvas is mounted on a carved out board. This both adds a three dimensional plane to the artwork and also serves as "counterpoint" of sorts in this rhythmic construction.
I like to bring together the warm, innocent and nostalgic feel of these "thrift store" painting against the calculated modern approach in constructing the final piece.
The title is borrowed from a sci-fi short story where similar themes are explored; juxtaposing nostalgia and technology.

White painted sides. Signed on back. Ready to hang
