The Plastic Vestige
A feature of artistic expression that is a constant focus of much, if not all of my work, is defamiliarization. “The Plastic Vestige” presents, perhaps, a rather banal image, an eye chart, in a fragmented expression. The “silence” of this piece is exemplary of a body of work wherein a visual lacunae is critical to such a muted delivery.
It is my intention with this piece to generate a muted expression of an image that is rather common and conspicuous in contemporary culture. Hence, the raison d’être herein is a visual expression of defamiliarization. Often these trite images simply blend into the environment. My purpose, in part, is to ‘re-present’ such hackneyed images to invert their intended purpose.
The views expressed by our artists in their artist statements do not necessarily represent the views of our art galleries. Artists can be visually expressive but may verbally misrepresent their true intentions or ideas. Please note that we support expression, whether it is controversial or not, but our intention is never to offend.
