The American Dream: fallacy and fruition


30" x 36"

Acrylic, oil pastel, and oil on unstretched canvas

 I like to use my work to engage and spark dialogue and conversations. The core ethos of the United States of Amerikkka is deeply rooted in this idea/belief of the American Dream. The American Dream is a piece that quite literally serves as a representation of my own questioning of the American dream.

To some of the American dream is a lore, to some it is a means to the end they desire. Therefore, I tender this question, is it really a dream when some die fighting to bring it to reality yet their descendants cannot reap the fruits of such labor?"

I hope to use this work create space for reevaluation and questioning.
