Maturation Machine

sold, collaborative with Mr. Roman's 11th grade classes, acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 30" x 36", 2011 ::


This painting comes with a users manual that describes the function of each machine component.


This machine transforms children into adults. Based on their own experiences and their study of "Catcher in the Rye," each student invented a component of the machine representing a system of society. These components (drawn on paper) were collaged onto the canvas.


This painting was auctioned online to benefit the class of 2012 at Galileo Academy. See for more information.
