Illustration // Friday, 14 Mar 2014

'The White Trash Series was developed while living in the South out of frustration with some of the prevailing ideologies, in particular, class distinction.This ideology seems to be based on a combination of myth, biased history and a bizarre sentimentality about old wars and social structures. With the juxtaposition of the portraits from museums, once painted on ivory, now on flattened trash like beer cans and fast food containers, the artist sets out to even the playing field, challenging the perception of the social elite in today's society.' - Kim Alsbrooks
