Racing To A Red Light
'Racing To A Red Light' is a series of text-based paintings that challenge the artifice and traditions of print advertising. Using a language that references vintage advertising and sign painting, the text elements are subverted to spell out new messages which are at odds with the graphic style of the image. Mixing humour, mischief, and melancholy, Racing To A Red Light transforms the profitable into personal, and raises new questions about the medium of advertising.
'Racing To A Red Light' showed at Unlovable Gallery in Toronto, ON from August 17-27, 2017.
