    About The Work

    NYPLPC Epitome 1. Chimera Barricade Sabot, combines an evocative set of visual elements that illustrate various systems/symbols of control met by acts of resistance. An engraving of an Egyptian criosphinx (the body of a lion, with the head of a lamb) is overlaid with an illustration of a traditional wooden shoe – a ‘sabot’, with roots to the word ‘sabotage’ – shown crushing a rattlesnake. A second paired image features another depiction of a sphinx – this time from a Late Imperial Chinese brush painting – which is laid across a photo depicting a worker uprising as they create a barricade out of the overturned vehicles.

    This print was conceived as one half of a diptych. The other half, NYPLPC Epitome 2 : I’m Hominini I’m L'Orange is available for purchase. Placed side by side, the geometric screenprinted elements connect them into a single narrative work, in which two prevalent facets of the ‘NYPLPC’ project play off each other and create a new direction for meaning.
