Windows and Phobias
Paintings created in 1996.
Acrylic on stretched transparent vinyl, these paintings are both transparent and opaque. They represent the windows at my home, during this time, in Los Angeles California. They have been been given the names of different phobias, such as Gymnophobia (is the fear of nudity), Xenophobia (an irrational or unreasoned fear of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange), Agoraphobia (fear of open spaces), Nyctophobia, Aerophobia, Acrophobia, Claustrophobia and so on.
The intent was to create a personal space, that was known to me yet a familiar reference for window blinds typically used for windows throughout Los Angeles.
This collection of photos were taken at Blum and Poe gallery.
