    About The Work

    Artist Frank Ryan says about this work, "I was looking at the uncanny, reading about the uncanny in architecture, the supernatural and the normal in the everyday, and that there's an unconscious fear of some kind of an outside foreign presence that will somehow inevitably penetrate the safest of domestic spaces. The ordinary becomes the conduit for the supernatural. As I was looking, I often couldn't quite place what was uncanny, but recognized it in lots of different things. There was a sometime self-reflexive quality that made me think about Alberti's Renaissance concept of the window, of painting as window looking into something. I wanted the storefront window to be a metaphor for the picture plane, for pictorial space. The chairs suggest animated presence, but in absence."
