Sister Golden Hair
Sister Golden Hair is a mixed media work composed of over eight thousand price tags, colored, and stamped with the associated Prismacolor code. I met the person, who's portrait this is of, on a social network in 2003. I decided to make this piece because I felt this new concept of social media was much like selling yourself as a product and not a person. The work may be an art piece but in many ways art sometimes feels like you're selling yourself as a product as well. This is a very odd union between two strange concepts, the soul and money. Personally this piece leaves me feeling a little uncomfortable and that is perhaps the point.
Price tags, ink, paint, wood, and steel
