The Explicable Visual Disability Series plays on visual perception. The three diptychs in the series are based on photographs taken during a Chinese New Year fireworks display. The color, orientation, layering, positioning and verbal text in the works break up the compositions into seemingly disparate parts, obstructing viewers’ attempt at making out the uniform whole.
The text on the top layer of the works draws viewers’ attention as they instinctively try to read it. As decoding words is a function of the left brain, the placement of text in the works playfully inhibits the right brain, supposedly the more perceptive hemisphere that enables artistic appreciation.
All artworks are digitally printed using high quality oil paint on canvas.
