This is the eighth art work in the series. I purposely left it to be the last piece I produced because of the enormity and complexity of what I feel, it means to be American. Looking through my lenses, it is probably very different from most Americans who have lived in the States all their lives. For the first 25 years of my life I visited America almost every year, so was very differently influenced by the intense excitement of holiday time, travel and family gatherings. White Christmases, trips to Disneyland, adventures in National Parks and Hollywood formed my formidable framework of reference.
America is a land of history, name brands and a nation where every state has a population who are innately unique. It is a land of beautiful landscapes and harsh deserts. Its people are diverse and its landmarks are remarkable and iconic. For my central theme of this artwork I have chosen to spin all of these ideas together by presenting a Marilyn Monroe type woman riding a Harley Davidson through Cadillac Ranch in Texas, right off Route 66. Bold, proud and loud … this is my vision of America.
