T.R.Y. 2009 Aluminium-cased light box lit with fluorescent tubes and coloured vinyl
64 x 46 x 18cm
Series 1 – 5 (+ artist’s proof)
T.R.Y. is a piece whose title is taken from text used in previous works made by Melvin, “Tomorrow Remember Yesterday”.
The light box depicts the text in descending size, mimicking loosely the format of an opticians eye chart. The piece appears clinical in its execution with a message asking the viewer to contemplate the moment, be that their here and now or the moment of encounter with the artwork itself.
