In anticipation of the coming DANGER issue, we reintroduce the Symposium—a collection of artistic creation centering on a single topic. This month, Ariana Chaivaranon, Owen Ojo, Francesca Violich, and Sarah Toomey contemplate “Danger.”
"Wait" is part of a series of paintings that place figures within a narrative of death. This series, painted on loose canvas, is tacked directly to the wall of the exhibition space, lending a rough immediacy and implying transience. The subjects are dislocated from the time and space they occupy through the use of distinct coloring and paint application between the figure and ground. Both the formal elements and the narrative of the piece play to the disturbance of the viewer.
