Acrylic on aluminum beer cans adhered to wood panel
39.25 x 55.5 x 2 inches (99.7 x 141 x 5.1 cm)
This work is the final painting that I completed in 2009 based on an earlier study from the previous year. The background is made from aluminum Budweiser beer cans that I cut, flattened, and adhered to a wood panel. This tedious process to just create the background took 3 weeks to complete. The work references my childhood growing up in rural Florida and explores issues of asserting male power.
