This work stems from my project addressing consumption, challenging viewer perceptions of context within a commercialized image. This work is designed to look like the many ads we see on a daily basis but juxtaposed with flat symbols and shapes as mass consumed objects. I have intentionally placed the daily habit of throwing out plastic as the catalyst for viewer questioning.

Getting to Know Dustin

You might call Dustin Joyce an iconoclast. His project, The Modern Americana, is a playfully satirical depiction of 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. Fun fact: Dustin works as an Artist Assistant to Jeff Koons.
