This collection of lithographs represents in a very literal way the intersecting point of technology, commerce, and art. Lithography has embodied this connection from its inception in 1796 to the invention of the modern day circuit board through photolithography. My work, referencing this historical backdrop, draws from the allure of foreign travel and its cultural impacts on industry, as well as on the dreams and aspirations of the American people. The chaos of our times possesses a certain humor through its very absurdity. This humor is portrayed in my work by creating compositions, often consisting of ordinary objects and figures, arranged together to create a psychedelic feeling. By utilizing the process of lithography I am adopting a commercial print aesthetic. This serves to connect imagery and process to the overall concepts of industrialization, travel, and the human impact on the natural world.
