Bombs, Bones, & Bacteria: mixed media work by Robert Reep and Tom Richard

The mixed media work of Robert Reep and Tom Richard takes images and objects at hand – a peep, a model airplane, a coffee filter and reconfigures these into jokes or puns with multiple meanings. The accessible imagery invites the viewer to make her own meanings – to play with the ideas, symbols, and references. Speaking the language of consumer culture with vivid, graphic juxtapositions and kitsch commodities, Reep and Richard erode the barriers between high and low, between danger and fun, between consuming and producing.
