Paschke’s works contained identifiable pop culture icons, but many were unidentifiable amalgamations of images of bodies and clothing sourced from magazines and newspapers. He noted, “In some instances there were fragmentary photographic sources. In other instances it was just a matter of accumulating experiences of seeing a variety of people and sort of playing Dr. Frankenstein in the sense of creating my own people. It was fascinating to me because, in the course of developing those paintings, they gradually took on personalities and identities that were not part of my initial conception at all. It was really a sense of discovery and fun as to how they would turn out.”
