Triple Overtime

The essence of basketball combines the basic game "catch" with the dynamics of dance, the love of a team, an instinct to win, and the otherness of games. "Triple Overtime" recalls the old legends and current NBA stars in oil, acrylic, Photoshop, and Microsoft Paint. Superimposed action shots of Steve Nash and James Harden evoke 90's basketball cards and dunk posters. The life-sized Muggsy Bogues print shares the dot matrix of old computer graphics. The show doesn't limit the players to the court. Some are pictured in fantasy situations including a Miami Heat sleepover, a post Malone/Stockton Ice Age, and a 'naked NBA.' Other stars featured: Carmelo Anthony, Lisa Leslie, Allen Houston, John Starks, Paul Pierce, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, etc.
