Plastic toys, reusable bags, and other discarded debris fill JMe’s unique container/frame painting with what appears to be floating chunks of ice (or, what some have said, “fallen sky” fragments). A message was applied with his customary laser cut letters to the center canvas, painted with colors to alert. JMe turns an ordinary idiom into a stark warning and cautionary assemblage. This accumulation of random childlike components with simulated wedges of ice possibly shorn from the metaphorical arctic ice shelf is a compelling message, mired in the flotsam and jetsam of waste, the disregard to control our impulses, the loss of innocence.
