Fine Art Print FAQs
Created in 2021. Artwork Dimensions (w x h x d): 30 x 30 x 3 in. "Saliva" explores the concept of heterotopia in relation to the utopian and dystopian dimensions of contemporary society. The piece features a mouth opening to reveal an incoming tide, a powerful symbol of the fluidity and unpredictability of the world around us. By evoking the idea of heterotopia, "Saliva" invites viewers to consider the ways in which our constructed social spaces both reflect and distort reality. The piece suggests that there is always a gap between our idealized visions of utopia or dystopia and the messy realities of the world and that this gap is often revealed most clearly in the spaces that exist between these two extremes. Through its use of powerful imagery and provocative symbolism, "Saliva" challenges viewers to question their assumptions about the nature of space and reality, and to consider the ways in which our social constructions shape and are shaped by our perceptions of the world around us.
