Artwork description:

One of a suite of works on paper inspired by the counter-intuitive concept of ‘Dazzle Camouflage’ which was employed on some allied shipping during the Great War, and more rarely, during WWII; 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. This simultaneously alters spatial cognition and yet signals a human presence by interpretation of the modified pattern.
The concentric rings may also be read as a sight or target. The individual under surveillance; vulnerable, every move monitored and recorded…
Representational figure work, but the composition owes much to ideas of Op Art and high contrast graphic design.

Materials used:

graphite and white acrylic on thick grey paper
