“Looking Good” developed out of my love of old magazine and newspaper ads, and mail order catalog illustrations. I was fascinated by the language, and how the messages appealed to people’s insecurities, to their vanity, and yes to their desire to “look good”! I chose images and words from these ads which highlighted these fears, along with the compelling images and created collages with them.
Some of these collages were enlarged and transfer to gels which were then applied to canvas or masonite and painted with acrylics. Others I used as a basis for a series of mono prints. Enjoy!
