I created "Consumption 5" in a series of 10 paintings that use common American symbols as a catalyst for a narrative on consumer waste. These works are part of a much larger body of work called the "Consumed Series."

You might call Dustin Joyce an iconoclast. His project, The Consumed Series, is a playfully satirical depiction of the current American lifestyle. More inquiry than proclamation, Dustin enhances and dramatizes our mass culture, making it appear as another advertising image. His paintings are neither inherently positive nor negative, instead, he intends to present an exaggerated view of our American culture. Dustin strives to design work that is both beautiful and offensive.
