A suite of works on paper inspired by the counter-intuitive concept of 'Dazzle Camouflage'. This was employed on some allied shipping during the Great War, not to offer concealment but to make it difficult for the enemy to estimate the target's range, speed, and heading.
Here the figure is partially concealed by a target pattern projected across a room, but simultaneously breaks this geometry and signals a human presence in the composition.
Listed as a representational figure work, but the composition owes much to ideas of Op Art and high contrast design.
