    The basic image consisted of a “skinned” (a disassembled and flattened) Marlboro box three wide. The image was lifted from the unpublished Halos and Bunnies Series, and transplanted into Queeny. The crown appears as a result of the flip top box packaging being placed side by side.

    The first association I made with the crown was Queen Elizabeth II. I looked for portraits of the Queen until I found an engraving on sale at Christie’s. It was test print for a British stamp which featured a much younger Queen. Once the stamp portrait was integrated I realized this could be a perfect follow up to the JFK Series.

    Initially I wanted to take possession of the Queen’s portrait by rebuilding it immediately. I stopped because it felt artificial … forced, besides the properness of the untouched portrait served as an anchor while I investigated what to do with the environment. Eventually the portrait became fair game. It was handled along with everything else while keeping the portraits sensibility.
