The exhibition features the artist’s newest and most ambitious work to date, showcasing more than twenty canvases and large-scale woodcut sculptures up to fourteen feet high. Supine has transformed the entire gallery into a personal installation space, covering every inch of floor, wall and ceiling with silk-screened wallpaper, his signature fluorescent colors and dreamlike narratives.
Ladyboy references the genderqueer. Supine describes the title’s significance as the marriage of opposites in one person — comparable to the technique of collage, combining seemingly disparate images to reveal something that wasn’t previously apparent. An intimate encounter by the artist with a ladyboy in Bangkok served as the stimulus for this exhibition ~ Sonja Teri
