As(s) The World Turns (2016 - )

A series of paintings of male butts functioning as clocks. The title of the series is inspired by one of the longest running, highest rated American soap operas. The daytime drama that focused on emotional and romantic relationships traditionally targeted women, paticularly housewives, with the term 'soap opera' derived from the cleaning product advertisements that sponsored and aired during the programming. The source images are from vintage Playgirls, referencing the second wave of feminism which pushed for legalization of birth control and abortion and the equal rights amendment, and kickstarted open expression of female sexuality. The series focuses on the evolution of American women in society on an economical and social level and their relationship to time, especially in respect to men and the shifting gender dynamic.
