Three vases that are reminiscent of human figures. Each vase is white and has a red-cross on it.
Historical Context:
"Most recently my work deals with the male stereotypes and roles. My fascination with athletics, strength, and protection along with the technique of silk screening is fitting vocabulary to explore these issues. The appropriation of male imagery and printing it on forms like trophies, protective equipment, and vessels marries my visual aesthetic with personal symbolism." -Michael Pfleghaar
