Boom Box

Kevin O'Rourke's avatar Kevin O'Rourke

“Boom Box” is a 4’ by 6’ hand-carved, hand-printed, linoleum block print piece that represents power and deconstruction in American culture. Incorporating playful and vivid candy wrapper colors, symbolically used in the marketing of impulse purchases, “Boom Box” visually represents the societal noise around an increasingly divisive subject in the U.S. today. The juxtaposition of size, color and subject matter, is a playful taunt to man-made machines and their larger impact in this world. Approximately 200-250 hours will be spent carving, cutting, and printing the 5 color/plate print.
