America Eats its Young
Tracking the lost American Dream through the 1960's and 1970's, the Cookie Monster is idolized in this painting of 'America Eats it's Young'.
High on Space cake, the mouth is the gaping black hole of space exploration. Cookie's body is made up of JFK commemorative stamps; the eyes capture the romantic vision of the era- expressed so coherently by Henry David Thoreau who was resurrected with wide popularity during that time; and the cookie has sprinkles of Clown stamps, love stamps, Voice of America stamps, and Support our youth stamps, all sent in the 1960s.
The stars of Imperialism spin around his head.
C is for Cookie. C is for Conspiracy. Eat My body, drink my blood. There is no Sacrament without Truth.
