"Trash Day" is part of my latest series Consumed. This series of work illustrates the perceived American lifestyle and current mass culture. Directly illustrating a narrative consumer motif documenting consumers and their relationship to possessions. This painting exhibits the waste from degenerate consumer society and stages unrealistic figures that help to load trash. This juxtaposition further inflates our objectified culture.

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.
