Front Cover image - Mauricio Olague, American Spirit. Dimensions: 41" X 31" X 7", Three dimensional construction with found objects and acrylic, 2014.
     This box, "American Spirit," deals with the many facets of American history and the male American psyche that borders not so much on revisionism, but the "Disneyfied" fantasies that makes the contemporary American male believe that if he smokes a natural brand of cigarettes, he is honoring both the Native American as well as the "true American spirit." Thus we see the toy bow and arrow, the toy fish and the toy matchbook contains a Norman Rockwell image of a performing cowboy before a show, having his assistant apply lipstick and makeup, indicating that this fabricated "old west history," goes back further than we may realize.
