“The achievement of Donald Trump, for every ugly thing he musters to his lips, for every repellent speech and every obnoxiously hypocritical move he makes is entirely endemic of the American century and its reflection in decline”.
“Archetypal symbols from the human subconscious dominate my imagery.”
“I had this image that the Colt ’45 was made in, say, Colorado, but no, it was made in Connecticut to conquer Colorado, to win the West. So that opened up a way of looking at American history that I wanted to pursue: ideas of westward expansion and the architectural structures of the gun factories with their strong pillars to hold all the machinery and gear; that talked about weight, and Empire. But the factories were all in ruins and I couldn’t work with that, visually”. –Donovan Wylie
