In this series, images are distorted and wrapped over a clear acrylic panel. The acrylic panel serves as a base and boundary for the images, alluding to the digital screen. The images on the front of the panel retain their original forms, presumably their accurate representation, but the back of the panel shows these very same images broken down and abstracted.
These artworks are meant to play with dimensionality, between spatiality and flatness. The ‘back’ of the panel implies depth beyond the frontal surface, the abstracted forms display lighting and shadowing, but are still relegated to flatness. Notions of foreground and background are also explored, with the clarity of the acrylic screen laying bare both sides.
In Dense Blind, imagery of stars and galaxies are twisted and abstracted, with the subtitle at the front alluding to activities of the night, and the word ‘empty’ setting up the artwork’s
mellow atmosphere, and suggests open space for contemplation and reflection, very much like solitary outings and idling in nightclubs and bars. The title contradicts these signifiers, derived directly from its formal appearance, looking like a curtain or cloth; these meanings become intermixed and mashed up, leaving a gray area in reading the work.
