Take This Job and Shove It (Rise of the Machines)
inkjet print on vinyl
232 x 556"
“Take This Job and Shove It (Rise of the Machines)” depicts an imaginary scenario where a warehouse forklift becomes sentient and rebels against his oppressors subsequently bursting through the walls and burning the establishment to the ground. Floating around the warehouse are pogs and speckled bullet hole decals, icons to cheap consumerism and passing fads. Printed on billboard vinyl, this mirrors commercial advertising methods, bringing what was once distant and out of touch directly in front of the viewer. This allows for the scale to truly be taken into consideration, alluding to the monumentality of Altar pieces.
