(Excerpt from) Artist Statement

"The series presents one-of-a-kind pictures based on mass-produced consumer goods. I love the contradictions inherent in the double meaning of this phrase--Gross Domestic Products. GDP functions simultaneously as a term for measuring the economic size of a country, while doubling as a disparaging description of the products themselves, complicating the reading of these images.

I am not only interested in the look of the packaging of certain products ... but also how drawing these products reveals certain autobiographical particulars about my life, creating an indirect portrait of myself. The series as a whole betrays intimate information such as my diet, the kind (and number) of pets that I have, and even my geographic location can be deduced from certain brand labels. Other habits, preferences and details are also revealed..."
