STEPHEN ANDERSON

I often use ad slogans as a starting point of which I deconstruct it meaning as a sales tool, to a statement on our existence. The work takes a critical, sarcastic and humorous look on the human condition from the mundane to the profound and how we are searching for meaning or a purpose where often there is none. To step back and realize we are but a speck living on a planet in the vast universe should give humanity perspective and make our personal and global problems and egos quite small, So take the time to pause a moment and notice the beauty among us.
