"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."
