technique   "Is this still life?" phrase in green neon

I like my phrase works to live beyond its initial form. They often include layered meaning that can be unpacked from its words, how it is formally executed (media etc) and where it is placed–be it geographically or literally on a wall or on a bed. Its meaning also changes by site/medium oriented recontextualization, this “site” is also socio-political space time.

Originally shown at Chicken (a moving pop-up off-space, coming to a hotel room near you!) Is this still life? was placed on an unmade hotel bed during lockdown. The neon is an online order, a pandemic mood, existential and questions art and the NOW.

In an ever changing flow of the present and a confrontation of aesthetic consistency, the phrase eventually continues into other mediums.
