Daniel Yocum: Celebrity Series (2023)
Yocum's Celebrity Series is a nostalgic window into early 2000's paparazzi culture. Daniel works with mixed media on canvas, combining collage style artwork with abstraction. This series is Daniel's humorous spotlight on celebrities, pop culture and their present influence on society. The works feature Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Adam Sandler. Sticking to his style and form, Daniel transforms our favorite gossip column moments into his own brand new paparazzi snapshots. Yocum's Celebrity Series comes from a candy-colored parallel universe, casting no judgement: simply a confrontational, and at times comedic reflection.
