Shopaholic Halfie, mixed media, 12"x 12"
The Internet grants us a virtual reality more compelling to some than the natural world. Any desire can be satisfied—virtually—with the stroke of a key, while simple contentment remains elusive. Love and security hover just over the rainbow, beyond the next purchase, trend or connection.
Shopaholic Halfie is an apparition of the web. Does she have an existence beyond the virtual? Meaningful relationships besides Manolo or Jimmy Choo? Is she a real person, a soft porn come-on or the outgrowth of adolescent imagination? Which is the fetish, Halfie or her shoes?
