We are what we eat, visually speaking. Each of us has absorbed through our eyeballs a mind-boggling array of images.
Dan Meth has created a compelling film that presents all of those visual inputs in a rapid-fire presentation. What’s funny is that Dan's list would be pretty much the same for any American (and to an ever larger extent, anyone in the world) in the same generation.
Todd Schorr has brought these images together in his large and complex paintings, warping the elements a bit and tossing strange things together, the way things tend to bounce around in our heads.
Schorr's work is currently being exhibited at the San Jose Museum of Art. Follow this link for more about the "American Surreal" exhibit and a nice series of videos about Schorr's work produced by the SJMA.
