Week 9- Artist- Joseph DeLappe

Joseph DeLappe is a very intriguing artist. His artwork began in 1993 and revolves mostly around technology, although he does do a lot of cardboard artwork as well. What stood out most to me about his work is that he brings out a lot of the truth in things. For example, he did an artwork that was just like a video game of war but he brought out the standard demographic of a white young male. I think that DeLappe does a good job at bringing out the things that most of us know about but are so normal now that they don’t stand out to us as much.

This work by DeLappe was really interesting to me. I didn’t know about this project until one of our classmates brought it up in discussion. In this project, he asked volunteers to stamp their bills with a tiny MQ1 Predator Drone. The irony in this picture is that the drone is over our the White House.

Overall, I think Joseph DeLappe’s work is really cool and different because of his irony. I love that in art so I think that is why I find his art so amusing. I like how he also brings up a lot of our problems in the world and has a smart, witty way of doing so. DeLappe is truly an amazing artist and I think that he is known for his keen sense of humor.
