I found in a NYC thrift store a fan album of more than 100 early snapshots of the band Menudo. One young girl had lovingly collected all of the snapshots and painstakenly arranged them. I was intrigued by her devotion as well as the vibrant images of the young band members.
As a homage to both the young fan and the band, I completed an installation of oil and mylar paintings as well as more than a dozen paintings on canvas that refer to the found snapshots. By exploring one young fan's album of the band, the strong cultural impact of band in 80’s and 90’s is revealed. 2013-16
