This is an 11″ x 17″ collage piece where I experiment with the same techniques again. I mounted my paper prior to collaging to a board so as to keep my image from warping too much from the wheat paste.
My inspiration comes from Andy Warhol’s famous Coca-Cola print. Here is a great quote by Warhol on Coca-Cola and consumerism from Warhol’s 1975 book, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol.
What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.
