The Burger: Exposed (2017) is a series of digital & acrylic paintings. It breaks down America's favorite object of consumption into nine separate artworks that combine digital painting with acrylic to evoke desire. "Bun,” "Dill Chip," "Cheese," "Burger," and "Bun 2" are separate photorealist acrylic paintings while "Lettuce,” "Tomato,” "Condiments," and "Onions" each show a mix of both media. Vivid realistic depictions, each painting is employed with subtle details to heighten the object's close connection to its tangible, experiential compliment. So much attention for an item quickly disposed of, if not consumed. "Burger" not only feeds the mind but also establishes a metaphor between personal habit and excess.
