Short A 6 by 6 grid of thin matte sheet metal squares in alternating light and dark greys sits on a similarly grey floor. The photograph is taken at an angle so that the grid and its squares appear more like diamonds than squares.
Short A crudely painted, misshapen person in military garb unnervingly stares at you.
Long An abstract collaged painting of a creepy ginger-bread shaped person wearing elements of a uniform: a maroon sash, military pins, and epaulets. His hair is made of a fringe of an epaulet that frames a face with distorted features. Its right eye is round and bulging, white with a large black pupil; its left is a red iris and a white pupil outlined by green, with a brown raised nose and black horizontal strokes form a mouth with three small white teeth. The body is composed of many green, brown, and tan blotches that almost look like mold or moss. The background is maroon with golden floral decoration. The painting is in a distressed wood gold-and-brown-painted frame.
Short In this black-and-white photograph, a shirtless young man driving while resting his left elbow on the car window is seen from the passenger side of the vehicle.
Long A black and white portrait of a shirtless young man driving, photographed from the passenger side of the vehicle. His bent left arm leans on the frame of the open window with his hand casually hanging inside. The bright sunlight over exposes the exterior and we only see white outside the vehicle; the boy's elbow disappears into the white background. The bottom frame of the photograph cuts across his shoulder; we only see a portion of his right arm in the lower right of the image, reaching up to the top of a steering wheel just outside the frame. Bangs tousled against his furrowed brow and lips slightly ajar, he looks out the front window, just beyond the right frame of the image.
Short In this black-and-white photograph, a shirtless young man with a small tattoo in the center of his chest is reflected in the left panel of a three-paneled mirror that fills the frame. His arms are raised above his head as he brushes his hair, looking at himself sideways.
Long The three-paneled mirror is out of focus and fills the frame of the image. An empty room with floral wallpaper and a tiled ceiling behind him fill most of the reflection, he is confined to the lower left of the frame. His observes himself, face turned to the side, and muscular arms raised to brush his wavy hair with a plastic brush. A small black line tattoo of a cross is on the center of his chest.
Short A woman poses seductively against a black background. Her face, body, breasts, torso, and hip are all collaged from different images. Her face is hallowed with deep shadows; her chest is a black and white clipping featuring a white lace bra; and her torso is a newspaper clipping that says, "10 Southland Men Killed in Action."
Short Four cactuses and three images of a woman in cowgirl garb appear on a white background with blue sky.
Long In the vertical image, the top fifth is blue, with the tops of four green cactuses extending up to the edge of the image. The cactuses grow from a white, wavy foreground like sand dunes. The whiteness extends to the bottom of the image. Next to one of the cactuses is a photo of the smiling cowgirl woman, standing with her hand on her hip. She wears a cowboy hat, red and white gingham top unbuttoned to her navel, yellow shorts, and brown cowboy boots while holding a small pistol in her other hand. The same photo is copied and manipulated twice beneath the original photo, with each copy slanting in opposite directions in a zig-zag pattern. In the bottom right corner, the back side of a postcard appears, as if pasted to the image.
Short A mustachioed, middle-aged man standing against a solid dark terra-cotta background is rendered in loose brushstrokes. While fully clothed, his bare left knee juts out from the side of his hip.
Long This is a painting of a fair-skinned, middle-aged man standing against a brown background. His gaze is directed at the viewer. He is bald and has a mustache and a goatee. He wears a beige turtleneck and bright blue jeans. His right hand is obscured, resting in his pocket, while his left hand hangs in front of him. A bare leg is jutting out from the side of his hip, knee bent.

Short Four concentric circles painted on a square canvas with a dark wood frame
Short A painting of a small yellow ochre circle is surrounded by a brighter yellow radius on the lower center edge of a square beige canvas.
Long A beige, square canvas with a slender, dark wood frame. A large, dark orange circle nestled within three concentric rings occupies the bottom center of the painting. The innermost circle is a solid, yellow-orange, resembling the yolk of an egg. It is is uniformly encircled by a thin and white ring. The next ring is the largest; it is bright yellow and broad, almost the width of the center circle’s radius. It is an imperfect ring, with a small, rounded bite missing at the 11 o’clock position. A fourth ring, slightly darker beige than the canvas, appears faint and transparent; the effect is less a shadow than a secretion spreading from the paint. The circles are vivid and immediately draw your eye, but they show no illusion of depth, and the overall effect of the painting is very flat. As you look closer, you notice a tiny dot of bright yellow floating to the upper left of the circles, like a planet orbiting a many-ringed sun.
