I have always been intrigued with the self-referential nature of culture and how old aesthetics are recycled in order to make new and current. With the idea of this cultural salvaging in mind, I decided to create my take of a mid-century modern geometric abstraction on the paper sample, thereby combining contemporary retro with that of sixty years ago. My hope is that fifty years in the future my drawings will evoke a similar reaction in another artist. I presume that it might involve butterflies, chewing gum or scantily clad nurses.
