Your Art Here presents ‘He didn’t mean it’ by artist Judith G. Levy for the Massachusetts Ave. Billboard Project. The billboard will be mounted July/August 2006.
In this current body of work, I investigate public/private domains. I am interested in using sign-making making materials and processes to address content that is not usually found in commercial signs, but instead, reflects the complicated, charged nature of our psychological, social and political worlds. The images often float in uncomfortable, ambiguous spaces that mirror our own positions, as we attempt to understand both the internal and external worlds in which we live. I have intentionally refined the imagery in order to create contrast with the complexity of the content. I am also interested in examining the changing nature of public information and private concerns and the choices that individuals and groups make in these arenas. By combining low-tech (drawing with a pencil) with high-tech (computerized sign-making processes), I underscore how our experiences are simultaneously simple and complex.
