Neutral Displays / Small Dilemmas

Mixed media sculpture and installation, including gallery shots and studo shots

This series of works involves the exploration of "neutral" color palettes and patterning in a loose relationship to the impossibility of neutrality in politics and social spheres. Influenced by "dazzle camouflage," a WWI-era technique of graphic treatments applied to sides of battleships, as well as traditional "ethnic" patterns, the object sillhouettes are disrupted or made more starkly outlined, preventing their ability to fade completely away.
