Collage titled Ice 2

Ice 2

1989-90
Stencilled oil paint and fret sawn plywood
56 x 41 centimeters

This collage followed the previous work in this series, Ice, but instead of a tiny isolated figure in a frozen world here the figure is enlarged and absorbed by the landscape until it is virtually indistinguishable from its environment. It can be read as a metaphor although the original intent was more a visual play on ideas such as camouflage and illusion.
