"This piece came about as part of a fascination with astronauts as a perfect semiotic metaphor for the American narrative in the late 20th century. I wanted to speak also to the disappearing role of the hero and the relationships between father and son. This image was the first piece I ever created in ballpoint on mylar. It was the first image I really gave my all to. Because of this piece I was offered a solo show in Chelsea. This piece is very special to me as it marked the beginning of my adult art career. I have re-created it in graphite on mylar, and am offering this hand-embellished print run because I would say it is my most iconic image to date.
Please give the gift of Art for this holiday season. A portion of my proceeds will be donated to the 'Rockaway Renegades' A grass-roots relief organization working in Rockaway Beach. Let's remember that while we are fortunate to have many things to be thankful for there are those out there with far less. Some of the victims of the hurricane are still without electricity. Thank you dearly your support and have a happy, healthy and free holiday!!! Find out more at RockawayRenegades.com
