With this recent work, I initially wanted to create a time capsule of the boardgames Americans played — focusing on the design, gender stereotypes, social themes, and evolution. I document the box tops or covers. There were some strange and very questionable social/political decisions made within the themes and designs of these games. It was the times we lived in then. By re-contextualizing the subject you can really see them anew. They are as much sculpture as they are paintings. Primarily on copper or steel, they are in the size of the original (although some are fictional). Everything, including the tape, stains, and tears are documented and archival. It’s become a bit of an obsession.
