I started the drawings for this ongoing series before I had a name for it.  The works are loosely affiliated and resemble The Black Frames in their formal, symmetrical structures.  They often display a combination of imagery and text.  The term Americana contains multitudes to me.  I cannot think of a word more cherished or loathed, an idea that could be molded into either something wholesome or perverse.  I hope these works capture some of the pathology as well as the poetry of our current moment.
