Large format work on paper. Approximately 140" x 60" on one sheet of 100% rag paper.
Engineers plays with the notion of the semantic coding of the word engineer and transcends the imagery through gender power, and ultimately how power structures in society are engineered by a controlling force. In this example, it is male mythology. The train engineer is teaching the boy 'what it takes' to be an engineer in gender politics. The image on the right is a stereotype of the 'American Dream'. The women in the kitchen cook the meals, while the men look at each other fraternally, yet as if they are in agreement of their roles.
Engineers is screen printed on the left half, and the right half is a large van dyke photographic process on rag paper.
