Job Interviews I, airbrush painting on paper, 2017

Series of four airbrush paintings on paper to accompany a commissioned anthology of writing titled 'Job Interviews' 

Publication edited and illustrated by Chris Evans, designed by Will Holder and published by Para Site, Hong Kong and uh books.

The ritual of the 'job interview’ can be considered as a courtship that’s conditioned by protocols that ask for a quite particular display: with social relations as material, a dance of conformity, the attempted imagining and echoing of expectations. The anthology of commissioned writing includes contributions by Nadim Abbas, Howie Chen, Heman Chong, Matthew Dickman, Jason Dodge, Holly Pester, Angie Keefer, Natasha Soobramanien, Marina Vishmidt, and Jonas Žakaitis.
