“Thank you! Have a nice day! (2023)” is a series of oil paintings that reframe everyday objects and the messages that they impart upon us.
There are objects and pieces that float throughout every person's life that they never truly see. It becomes easy to forget that these objects take up space, exist in the world with us and will most likely outlive us. In this series I explore the messages that these items give to us by recentering the human intention behind them. In my journey as a graphic designer I found myself in a unique position of noticing. Essentially, it became my job to notice. Typography began to jump out at me from the strangest places. And the most unassuming objects began revealing some sort of intriguing truth.
With this series I ask others to practice the art of noticing. Every object is trying to tell you something, you just have to look up and notice.
Thank you and have a nice day! "
