The American addiction to celebrity is interesting, curious, morbid, and utterly shameless. This work draws on celebrity subjects who are part of the media or scrutinized closely by such.

I have to credit (for my inspiration) Ken Brown, who made me laugh with his coupling of people on postcards and tees in the ’80’s.  I still remember the Ike Eisenhower and Tina Turner coupling I loved. I wore that T-shirt until it yellowed with age. Continuing in that tradition with a different aesthetic but a humor not so distant, I am creating this series of Unlikely Couples. These pieces are made from digital print images I find, alter, and collage.
