Road House  
The Road House Project is a cycle of paintings, installations, drawings  and videos depicting road side architecture constructed to advertise, localize and divert travel by bringing one to a full stop.  
 The building as sign and sign as place, in a road conversation, reveals the road house as a functional transition, convenience and stopping place in decline.  Search engines and websites that promise variety, significance and adaptability import a road house aesthetic of the local.  The perspective of the "road test" measures speed against stopping to look.  From the blues to fries, a big sign small business ethos features local and exotic road-tested search-and-stop constructions.  Endeavoring to bring a viewer to a full stop with painting, road house representations offer translations and remainders of the familiar, the exotic, customs and movement.
