Jesse Amado, ‘Veblen Goods’, 2015, Ruiz-Healy Art

Amado has an amazing ability to cut through the ordinary context of common objects and reveal their innate physical beauty. Much like the physical iPhone, we are drawn in to the sleek and beautiful look of the phone. The simplicity in design is replicated here with the use of Amado's iconic Le Corbusier acrylic paint in Yves Klein Blue and wisps of gold on a white background. He is exploring the aesthetic essence of the iPhone as much as he is analyzing the significant part it plays in our daily lives.
