While I spent the last several years designing and building furniture for Stockpile Designs, I actually started out as a visual artist. I'd always planned to supplement the designs with artwork, and am thrilled to show the first image from my print series created for Stockpile Designs, Nom de Guerre.

Nom de Guerre appropriates imagery from war-themed children's books and military publications, addressing the literal objectification of soldiers within popular discourse. As methods of combat become more mechanized and sophisticated, fighting forces are referenced by their specialized roles, as tools in a kit. Complexity is lost even in depictions of individual soldiers. They are portrayed as heroes or villains, excised from those entanglements of personality that fail to advance the accepted narrative of the larger conflict. Homme de Guerre demonstrates the absurdity of this binary thinking, presenting soldiers as absurdist constructs, unified with the machinery of war.
