With the "Rolodex Paintings", a recovered rolodex from a defunct Long Island City plastics company became a time capsule to a nascent industrial age. The names of the manufacturing companies on the cards – with their Sputnik-era typefaces – spoke of a very different time, when nomenclature had to say more because imagery was less ubiquitous than in today’s visually saturated marketplace. The names - some almost hilariously sexual from the perspective of a since morally liberated culture - seemed to happily pun on the banging and grinding, squirting and molding nature of the functions their machines carried out. Both in name and in imaginary functions, these faded corporations and the products they might have produced became the focus of this body of abstract paintings.
