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.

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.
