2004 - 2006
After a series of unfortunate events, I found myself constantly quoting Dorothy Parker in asking, “What Fresh Hell is this?”. The innocence of vintage advertisements seemed to be the perfect background in which to plant my more cynical message, as it would be a greater juxtaposition in this idyllic setting. Just as these tragic events would seem to be subsiding, another chapter in Fresh Hell would be unleashed, which is where the pasted over advertisements came into play. I would try to paste over the unpleasantness but a new event would be exposed, resulting in the layered effects in this series.
