"There are a lot of twists and turns with this image. The Indians dressed for a raid speak to an eminent attack, yet the village below is not your normal Indian encampment. A closer look will show the stripped tipis are actually small carousels with vintage cars beneath the canopies. As Indian tribe attacking Indian tribe was a common part of native American Indian history, I thought it would be fun to mix up the visual meanings of things. For modern soldiers, Showtime is a phrase for attack or move forward into danger, so the idea of a war party coming to experience another type of showtime struck me as an ironic image."
These images, sometimes funny, sometimes serious, have their own individual story. Michael uses the computer to knit together unique imagery not commonly seen together in this context. Whether he uses old images in new ways or mixes new images with old images, each collage comes together as one complete graphic concept. Possibly some will bring laughter, some will bring beauty and some will bring contemplation. Hopefully, you will want to bring some prints into your home.
