GI Joel, 8x10 inches oil on canvas panel, by Kenney Mencher

When I choose a subject for a painting it has to mean something to me. Yes I think about my audience, how there is an intersection between the things I want to look at the things they want to look at. In this case, the whole mythos about sex in the military and start having to do with men in uniform alongside of growing up with playing with G.I. Joe dolls. Whenever I see a soldier from the Army I have this weird sort of series of thoughts in which I think about 1940s and 1950s war movies and how handsome I thought the men were in those films.

The color in this is influenced somewhat by my notion having to do with black and white film from the 1950s and 1940s. So the color is a little bit muted and I also kind of thought of the picture plane of the canvas as a kind of TV screen in which I was watching a black and white movie.
