The Neon Revival Project

The Neon Revival Project is a series of artworks that is meant to shine a light on the things that we worship today, namely money, fame, technology, and sex. The artworks created in this series will bring the view out of the darkness by literally bringing light to these false idols.  Thus we get the name of the first piece in the series, False Idols, which places an all seeing eye at the top of a pyramid of aztec gold neon.  The all seeing eye at the top of the pyramid represents the all seeing eye looking down at the false idols below but it also alludes to the U.S. Dollar which famously features a pyramid with an omniscient, floating eye as is point of convergence.
