My last exhibition at the Robert Pardo Gallery in New York was in 2001. The show was entitled, Seeing Subjects: An Installation of Painted Works which consisted of 36 painted works strategically arranged to maximize on the visual discourse of seeing and spectatorship. I am interested in the reception of the viewer to the work and the interpretations evoked. These works propose to reposition the spectator in relation to and a part of the visual narrative, as the subject-position of these works.
Seeing Subjects describes some other space than a benign, anonymous vacuum; it is more like an extension of the space within the paintings, a narrative extension where the spectators themselves subtly become subjects within the narrative of the work. The experience is not unlike looking through a stereoscope: the image viewed becomes a three-dimensional space and through the act of looking, the viewer is incorporated into the space itself, as a looking subject.
