The Dress sits on a chair in front of the landscape.
The work plays on the borderline of two and three dimensions, integrating paint with objects and ping-ponging between illusory and physical space handling. The installation confronts the viewer at first glance as a painting in a conventional frame.
The territory depicted is partly assembled from fragmented fables and fantasies, yet holds the domains of doubt and dysfunction beneath its upbeat façade. A reminder of legendary/mythical imagery depicted in saccharine colors, such as the dress and the hovering butterflies, is reminiscent of my previous work in painting.
The viewer can take an active or passive role in this installation. Constantly shifting the scale of objects in relation to one’s body challenges the viewer’s sense of equilibrium, conceptions of previous sculptural conventions and sense of invariable identity. I seek to violate the viewer’s psychological ground. This violation becomes physical, creating, from the moment of first encounter, an impossibility of indifference.
