The Flappes series was inaugurated in 2012 and continues the artist's exploration of automobile parts as foundational object, begun in the Coppers from the Hood series (2007 - today). Based on gas cap lid doors, Flappes are covered in copper leaf and painted with imagery. Like the Coppers series, Flappes reference the artist's fascination with the aesthetically pleasing, problematic and highly symbolic nature of the automobile.
