Materials: inkjet print, paper

Collection: Courtesy of the artist, Jack Shainman Gallery, NY, and Koplin Del Rio, CA.

The pictures of models, landscapes and interiors are illuminated with black light. The images are on the border of seeing and not seeing, and are full of references to elements and use of African-American culture. In Black Christmas, for example, we see under the Christmas tree toys designed in the 1950s for black children.
