"Sandy de Lissovoy sees the surface as
integral to the process of perception. Screens,
2015, is a floor piece of three wooden frames
with inserts of color panels, metal sheets
and plexiglass that questions the categories
of painting, sculpture and architecture. The
screens of interlocking frames can be folded,
extended and repositioned to create varying
configurations of space and perception.
Depending on where the viewer stands,
the metal sheets reflect the color panels;
the solid panels in the foreground obscure
those in the background; and the plexiglass
offers a transparent view through to those
panels behind it. The mobile screens envelop
neither interior nor exterior spaces, holding
only the surfaces of the frames and inserts.
The opacity and transparencies offer nothing
representational, instead they focus our
perception on the process of looking
and seeing." Chương-Đài Võ. 2015
