The World Is Ours/Secrets To A Happy Marriage

Photograph By Corey Smith

"['The World Is Ours'] was based on the Cadillac Escalade Power Wheels for kids, which is an actual product that people buy. Watch them grow up and help encourage and shape their ignorance and self-entitlement at a young age! [With 'Secrets To A Happy Marriage'], I was dealing with this resentment I had against the whole trophy-wife culture and how it's promoted in our society. I like how they kind of look radioactive or half dead, just mindless consumers." (Mixed media on wood panel with gloss resin finish, 2006/Mixed media on wood panel with gloss resin finish, 2005)
