Kelly Lyles was kind enough to trade me a ton of her prints in exchange for the Microwave Love Tester Diorama.
All the prints are from her rodent series. Here's what she says about them:
"These paintings came about in response to the constant questions about my art-car, Leopard Bernstein. "Are you a Leo?" "You must really identify with leopards." None of the above.
Of any animal, my personality is most akin to a Hamster, and thus the 'SPAMSTER' piece was born, and the positive response spawned this group.
In my 'Rodent' series, there are no subliminal messages regarding 'mass-media, marketing, consumerism' et al, I simply love verbiage and the physical representation of the wordplay, scale and juxtaposition of such disparate subject matter. These are simply playful pieces based on puns and alliteration. Enjoy."
