Hidden Works (SERIES)

Collaborations with John C. Gonzalez
Mixed media

These works are an ongoing collaborative series between artist John C. Gonzalez and myself, where we create site-specific paintings and sculptures directly within art institutions. Absent of signage, these abstract works are meant to become partially absorbed by the architecture of the spaces and are essentially hidden in plain sight. Without directing the experience of how one is to view these works, visitors are invited to discover the pieces as they search walls, ceilings, and floors, questioning every mark or crack in the space. These pieces are intended to embody a sense of play and interaction within the context of visual art, functioning as an observational treasure hunt that dissolves any visual dictations or exhibitional formats associated with these various mediums.
