About the art
Win! (2009) begins simply, with the word for what every fan wants his team to do, whether he's screaming it on Sunday or reading it in the headlines of Monday's paper. Simplicity disappears with the next word: "Vanquish" takes "win" to extremes, suggesting the overpowering of an utterly defeated foe. "Conquer" adds notions of control and possession to the rapidly growing mixture of meanings. Then "Clobber!," "Drub!," and "Rout!" evoke the exaggerated language of comic strips as they also recall the clichés often typed by sportswriters.
