“My research explores the mundane, man-made object as cultural icon. Blissful memories of birthday parties at McDonald’s Playland or playing with plastic cowboys and Indians are part of our social inheritance. On a personal level, as fixtures inherent in my childhood and adulthood experiences, telephone poles and Bic lighters surpass their functional identities. These objects invoke memories of long road trips or smoking my first cigarette. My body of work is a meditation upon the intrinsic value of these normally unconsidered objects.” _ Joe Von Stengel (excerpt from artist statement) Art People “Consolidation” - digital illustration “Pattern Joy Wallpaper” - digital design The artist Joe Von Stengel Joe Von Stengel is an artist and designer and digital art and design professor at Hartwick College.
