The Jeans paintings, made from deconstructed men’s denim, are a meditation on American symbolism—a rough and durable material transformed anew. In these works, denim is a stand-in for both landscape and directional brushstroke. Pollock-like splatters are a nod to canonized gestures as well as natural wear and tear, and the inclusion of colorful bands offers an atmospheric juxtaposition to what is a particularly American version of nostalgia.
