Susan Bozic, He’s so thoughtful, it wasn’t even my birthday, 2006.
Susan Bozic’s latest effort is a farcical examination into the perception of the perfect man. In these prints, the artist is seen living the high life with her idyllic other. The temptation is to laugh; however, the sardonic overtone cannot be ignored.
Susan Bozic, He let me pick the movie, 2005.
On some level Bozic may be living out a virtual fantasy but the plastic man and the rented life expose obligation in utopia. When the absolute becomes less than human it may be time for a reevaluation of personal criteria. A completely controlled existence forms a hollow shell without memories that graduate to experience. The lesson from the artist is learned with that initial instinct to laugh.
Susan Bozic, Finally, some time to ourselves, 2006.
