Statement

 

The work is my statement.

I think about the falsity of fame and glamour here in America. How is fame/glamour eroding in our present society? What facade does fame/glamour have on our collective consciousness to truth? My work is the observation of the deterioration of fame/glamour within America. I use a candy-coated approach to show the false reality we believe here in America,even when the truth is not as glamourous as we like to think.
