    Keeping Hollywood Sexy  14' x 4.5' x 9"  Installation  2008-2010  Keeping Hollywood Sexy is a concentration of all my installations captured on a shelf. The shelf was made by adding a router for a smooth curve to the edge of a long piece of pine. Sanding it smooth and gold leafing the entire surface worked as a reflective surface for the objects that sit atop it. The objects are loaded with symbolism. Especially the decanters and perfume bottles that have oiled, drowned, upside down bird feathers in them. The Hollywood movie stars of the early 1900’s inspired the title for this installation, ‘Keeping Hollywood Sexy’. If it was a woman opening the scene often she would be in front of her vanity with her bottles of perfume, if it were a man he would cordially invite his guest in for a drink from a crystal decanter on his shiny bar. I was thinking about the wars, all the wars, where the US benefits from oil money, and all the money that keeps Hollywood sexy.
