This painting directs viewers’ awareness to the background information located in the space they are standing in. Despite being a mass-produced product, these light-switch fixtures possess character as a result of habitual re-paintings between exhibitions. Subjects appearing over-sized challenge the audience’s perception of their surroundings.
