The overly distressed piece “Modern” is meant to play on our notions of subversive art. The piece is a statement about the fleeting nature of what is considered ‘modern’. The sputnik in the atomic age was once ultra modern, and now it is a quaint relic. The iphone in your pocket will be the same thing someday.
The 3D globe with incandescent bulbs and special weathering techniques like craquelature on white lettering give it additional personality.
Completed and sold in 2012.
