Displacement - new work by Mark Havens

I bet you can't guess what these images are?

No idea?

They're large photographic prints of the vintage model car decal sheets you probably had as a child - "tiny snapshots of color and shape that over time become elemental symbols and glyphs in the personal mythologies unique to each of us".

Seeing these tiny decals exploded to such a large scale really exaggerates the print quality and colour creating a wonderful patina and a warm feeling of nostalgia.

Displacement - new work by Mark Havens is currently showing at JAGR: Projects Philadelphia, until the end of July 2011.
