The MMMNC series of paintings features agglomerations or sections of corporate symbols used in a metaphoric way, appearing in new combinations and constellations. They are transformed into landscapes, orbit as planets and UFOs, or try to usurp one another in pseudo-ornamental friezes, demonstrating the agility with which they can create new contexts and realities.
