crazy crazy crazy

Ink and watercolour on paper, 8x10 inches. The original drawing is sold.

This is a mix of ideas I've had for a while. The diamond is a re-occurring element in my work, and usually I refer to it as a cubic zirconia, which is a fake jewel, fake luxury, pretending, etc. My work is often about identity, and the things we wear and do in order to come across a certain way. So much of our behaviour is pretending, or role-playing. I certainly see that when I walk the streets of the city, watching people strut around like peacocks. And I definitely saw that in the corporate world. Basically I find all of it kind of crazy, to put it simply. Also, an upsidedown diamond makes for an interesting letter 'A'.
