SIAS I, 2014

Vasilisa Forbes

A heart-shaped face with dramatic makeup arrests your gaze, emerging out of a deep black background in a dramatic — and potentially ambiguous — cinematic environment. The artist uses her own face for dramatic effect in this cryptic composition, which explores the visual language of signs. It’s structured almost like an advertisement on a billboard: we sense the syntax of a simple, direct message, yet its meaning eludes us.
