Jon Rafman - You Are Standing in an Open Field (Mount Adams, Washington) - 2019
Jon Rafman’s edition for Spike, from his series “You are standing in an open field”, is an archival pigment print of a cluttered desktop and keyboard. Where the computer screen would be, an image of a majestic snowy mountain stands partially obscured by the ephemera of daily life. Cigarette butts, plastic cups, crumpled receipts, and other detritus strewn across the workspace juxtapose the “higher” and “lower” planes, or the real and the ideal. The image thus portrays both our aspirations and the banalities of our existence; at once a portrait, a still life, and a landscape, the tableaux captures the human experience.
