"Odd Couple" - 1995

Enamel paint on paper, 3' x 3' - Cambridge, MA.

In August of 1995 the Zeitgeist Gallery of Cambridge MA invited 24 Artists to create 24 works to be displayed on a billboard in Cambridge, MA. The artist made this work using a stencil and spray paint. This project exhibits the public and transitory nature of images in today's culture. They are often large, and temporary. A billboard for a product displayed one month gives way to a political message the next.

By placing computer designed images on this billboard setting the artist raises issues of permanence and temporary as well as the use of generic icons in the public realm. The tall slender female figure next to the short squat male figure calls into question standard representation of heterosexual couples.
