Untitled (Study of Stairs 4 times) is a piece originally shown as part of Tomorrow you will not recognize us at Fourteen30 Contemporary. Derived from Rodchenko’s photograph Stairs, Untitled looks towards the Constructivist and Supremacist movements as a point of departure for deconstructing issues with making art in today’s culture. By repeating, mirroring and flipping the image, the formal composition of a woman climbing the stairs transforms into several figures walking into an abstract void.
