Description

Left Hanging is an ongoing series of text drawings and prints quoting unanswered messages I sent on internet dating sites. The viewer knows nothing of the author/artist or the recipient. Legibility is compromised: all punctuation is removed, the words are warped and distorted, echoing the author’s initial efforts to shape the message for its intended recipient. Initially intended for a private singular audience, these messages, now made large and corporeal, are transformed into peculiar proclamations, meticulous shrines to longing, a tenacious exercise in oversharing. That each carefully crafted message failed, perhaps unread even by its initial recipient, matters no longer. Black tyvek drawings, their hand cut letters left dangling, are hung off the wall and lit with a spot, casting stark shadows that are often more clearly legible than the object casting the shadow. Thin and delicate, these drawings are fastened only at the top, allowing the works to be responsive to the slightest breeze. Individual letters flutter and shake, further activating the forms.
