“Generation X”



“Generation X”    26″h x 21″w x 13″d

“This piece speaks of the so labeled American generation of people and how during the course of their lives smart phones and computers have become intrinsic to society.  The abstracted figure is embracing a device, oversized in scale, to emphasize how much it capitalizes his existence.  Despite his intense focus on the device, which is supposed to give him pleasure, he still feels empty and hollow, acknowledged by the void in his midsection.  The de-emphasized ears imply he hears nothing else, and is ignoring the larger world around him as it passes him by.  The red color is aimed at getting the attention of those same viewers that are becoming acclimated to shock art.  Then of course there is the larger silhouette of the X”.
