Spray painted, detailed with acrylic. Dripping with 24k gold paint and slathered with 2 layers of resin, this piece evokes the excess materialism of todays pop society and those that strive for it. Gold digger is a series of women crying over material objects from a set of 8. All portrayed at the state of their demise.
I grew up in a small California central valley farm town and made my way out to Iraq after college during the war in 2003 to work with US military. Through my trials and tribulations of the past ten years, I've lived through the excess blunders of money and war and currently reside in Dubai.
