The overture to Joel Kiser's work consist of a careful arrangement of appropriated Americana Kitsch forms entangled with a surface vocabulary of 1980's fan boy culture.
Kiser's sculptures recall an elaborate allegory of grotesque figurines, handled typical of adolescent school boy doodles, while exposing the attraction to the "tall tale" element of storytelling.
