Since my teenage years I’ve been fascinated by the prophetic and perplexing writings of Marshal McLuhan. Inspired by the book ‘On McLuhan, Forward Through the Rearview Mirror,’ edited by Paul Benedetti and Nancy DeHart, I’ve been playing with the power of pairing words with imagery for years. I sometimes work with found images (usually from magazines) and sometimes with imagery and graphics that I produce myself. Similarly, I sometimes like to work with quotes from books or songs while other times I work with little wordmarks or sayings of my own creation.
This work is fun and meditative for me. More sketch and process than finished piece.
