People in Real Estate, 1997

Iris print on cotton paper, Edition of 6


For a year of Sundays, I went through the “Your Valley” editions of the Los Angeles Times, checking out the black and white portraits of real estate agents in the advertising supplement. Every week, new faces of men and women, posed by professional photographers, appeared beside their sales promotions and accomplishments. Finally, I selected twenty-five of the women only, arranged them in a grid, and printed it with the fonts lifted from the newspaper.


In many ways, this print helped identify my major themes moving forward as an artist. I would collect objects from the consumerist culture, particularly with the oddly suburban/celebrity glam of the San Fernando Valley/Hollywood influence. Then back in the studio, I would arrange them in a simple accumulation, with little manipulation on my part. My work became more three-dimensional, but I never lost the desire to reveal layers of metaphor buried in the most obvious of objects and situations.


In art school, I remember thinking too bad I can’t have Urban Angst. Didn’t seem appropriate in El Lay. We seem to have more of an underlying anxiety – humor comingled with pathos, extravagance covering over loss, dreams flirting with disaster.
