american bucolic

Loosely referencing Philip Roth's classic novel that in part depicts an identity narrative as severely misbehaving reality, American Pastoral is a collection of surface conditions applied to borrowed forms and material. This ongoing project aims to question notions of tradition that derive from a narrow band of American experience - involving riffs on commodity, advertising, war, horror-as-entertainment - through juxtaposition, disjunction, and decontextualized symbolic representation.
