“Enough is as Good as a Feast” is my first and largest body of work.
The pieces are photo-based assemblages using actual consumer-goods packaging.  Earlier work from this body combined products with photos whose relevance were not immediately apparent, such as Jell-O packages with a photo of processed lunch meats. Later I moved towards using photographs of Hollywood musicals, taken with a digital camera from a television screen. These images are intended as a metaphor for the joys to be found in the consumer marketplace as promised by advertising.
