Who’s the Boss?

July 17, 2013

Who's the Boss?

For Gallery 1988‘s upcoming show “We Made Them Do It” artists were asked to focus on a “guilty pleasure” in the realm of pop-culture. The exhibition aims to be a commentary on the oversaturation of pop-culture themed art shows that Gallery 1988 themselves pioneered so many years ago. I’ve always had a huge bro-crush on Tony Danza, and loved the sitcom “Who’s the Boss?” growing up, for it’s humorous challenge of gender stereotypes. I imagined Tony taking on every Nintendo boss ever to prove, once and for all, Who’s the Boss. And appropriately, despite all these other pop-culture-gallery-wannabes, Gallery 1988 is still, also, THE BOSS.

Koopa, It’s What’s For Supper

For the upcoming show Pixel Pushers, sponsored by SCION and curated by Giant Robot, I decided to explore the carnivorous side of the world of video games. Though I myself eat meat, enough of my friends and loved ones are now vegetarians or vegans, so it’s something I’ve been experimenting with. I suppose these pieces are a by-product of that exploration. That, and my long-time obsession with meat diagrams.
