DESCRIPTION

In Happiness…, Cramer gives context to our culture of violence and obsession with death. Emerging from his antipathy to violence and media’s sensationalism of brutality, Cramer creates paintings where icons of death become glossy and highly desirable products.  In so doing, he illustrates a deterministic view of mass consumerism; the conceit of free will as fatalism.
