Thomas Dozol’s Côtes d'Azurs features a series of silkscreen prints on paper and wood. The installation is lit by ultraviolet black lights and l also include dayglo paint markings and prints pasted directly onto the walls of the gallery.
Dozol’s practice begins with the photographic image, which he shoots on film. He then removes the background context and highlights the figure using geometric shapes and dayglo colours. Through his silkscreen techniques of repetition and slight offsetting of two layers, he creates a powerfully understated visual language. The resulting images present the body as an icon.
