Trailers and their mysterious occupants run through Blue McRight's latest series of paintings. The artist states, "There used to be a trailer parked in Venice upon which was flatly stated in cheap stick-on letters that its occupant was 'no one you know'. This terse phrase and its layered notions of identity, anonymity, and personal space instantly fascinated me, as did its trailer context - disguising its owner and embodying the ambiguous condition of mobility and constraint." The small paintings, 6" x 9" works of oil on paper, take the viewer out on the road where anything can happen.
Artist: Blue McRight
No One You Know runs through June 27, 2009 at the Samuel Freeman Gallery in Santa Monica.
