title: International Playboys

date: 2017

size: 4' x 20' - montage of 58 framed prints

medium: digital composite prints on canvas, individually framed


This work consists of 85 of Matthey Brady’s 1800’s collodion portraits of capitalists, generals, senators, and priests digitally altered using the color palettes popular in contemporary men’s fashion overlaid with a repetitive pattern of consumer symbols/signs.  The work serves as a political/social critique where influential figures are “packaged and sold” to the public devoid of innovate thought or political/social discourse.

This artwork is housed in the permanent collection at the Huntington Museum of Art.  For more info about the HMA, click here.
