Breathing life into discarded visual ephemera from popular culture, Morning Breath resurrects outmoded imagery to produce artwork that is new and original, yet eerily familiar. Morning Breath’s art practice is a multilayered system of collage on wood that begins with an initial image or typeface which is then built on by continually adding elements until a final image emerges. Figures and objects are appropriated from old advertisements, divorced of their original intent as marketing devices and reconfigured into original compositions by the Manos Extrañas or “strange hands” of Doug Cunningham and Jason Noto. Devoid of narrative, human figures stand adrift in the stratified picture plane. Originally manifested as pawns in the free market strategy of “off” Madison Avenue. Madison Avenue’s stealth psychological manipulation, are now delivered to the viewer in a juxtaposition with religious and pop culture iconography creating a new kind of psychological mirage where the dream-like world of the subconscious emerges out of the recycled mundanity of everyday life.
