YOU ARE HERE

YOU ARE HERE at Box Spring Gallery not only invites the viewer to join artist Michael S. Heitler on city tours and site-seeing, but demonstrates ourselves as a visual culture, where signs, directions and advertising dominate. Easy to recognize in regards to our daily experiences, our environment is both supported and informed by visual communication, and an enhanced environment can spark curiosity and even seduce. Here, icons of advertising are present in traditional painting, and include textual elements, banners, flags and bright colors. The title YOU ARE HERE is taken from the indicator phrase on orientation signs, commonly used in amusement parks, hiking trails, shopping malls, and tourist attractions.
