Exogenous Paintings

A series of exogenous paintings. Exogenous in that they are directed outwards towards the immediate context. Rather than representing distant things or remaining internally focused, the paintings are deictic – they point to the world (at least until the context shifts).

Stencilled text on a minimal abstract painting that hangs just to the right of a door: ‘The door is just to the left.’

Bright red painting with blue text: ‘The painting opposite is yellow.’
On the opposite wall, a bright yellow painting with blue text: ‘The painting opposite is yellow.’

A painting that depicts the scene directly before it. It is called ‘Vampire Mirror’ because none of the people currently in the room appear. Most evidently, the viewer is invisible.

A painting that directly asks: ‘Who is looking?’

And so on.
