This series of work combines collage, painting and clothes to exemplify the nature of corporate culture and the environment in which it thrives. Concepts of work, play and perception of hierarchical structure are symbolically heightened to represent a system that perpetuates between the job and the worker.

(2) 48”w x 60”h diptych
Watercolor collage paper, spray, Armani suit on canvas

Women in the work environment are common. However, women in positions of corporate power are a little more unique. The Armani suit is twisted and turned to show the Woman in charge and wearing the pants. The "collective" sports jacket is stretched in adoration or homage at the base of the icon that is the pant-suit.

A great deal of stress comes through interpersonal communications. Whether to praise or curse, or even to lodge a complaint. Keeping customers happy can tear a person up inside as shown by the collage over the front of the white stretched shirt. This shirt is set into a view of the road ahead and the distance still to go to the next client.

48”W x 120” H diptych
Oil, Spray, Hugo Boss suit
On Canvas

The Boardroom is a dangerous place. Always a politically charged arena. The power Hugo Boss suit speaks a cult of management and the power to make decisions for the collective. The figure is looking two ways at once- a much needed skill ( or is it two-faced) in that environment. The pants are set against a tabletop where a "w" is a board member watching the show.
