As FRINGE’s year long project (one print a month) rolls out, a couple of things have become apparent: 1. Texts are heavily influenced by the social media. 2. The works obsess about the present, a big preoccupation in Pop Art.
FRINGE’s forms take their cue from graffiti and graphic art. Each print functions as a pop poster with a message. And now he turns his eye to the eye chart. Or the chart of the mind’s eye to be exact.
Collectively, we may have seen the catastrophic year ahead coming. But we chose to respond in so many different ways, to make the crisis visible, that we pulled in opposite directions.
As 2020 draws to a close we remember how it screwed us. The new artwork makes reference to the small print. Like a contract we signed unwittingly, we are now bound by sinister little clauses we cannot escape from.
But if you look real close you will see how art can take away the blind spots.
