Mendenhall studied at California School of Arts and Crafts and became associated with a group of San Francisco artists who openly painted meticulous renditions of photographs. In the nineties, Mendenhall continued to investigate the types of interiors, pools, and backyards found in the pages on House Beautiful and Architectural Digest. Mendenhall’s images often bear a resemblance to advertising images from a previous age. He bases his work on meticulous depictions of magazine photographs to comment ironically on society.
