Plays a rusted trombone

SLEEPCENTER is pleased to present “Plays a rusted trombone,” solo show of Weston Frazor. The show consists of depictions of architectural spaces and ordinary objects. Perspective lines painted on wall, paper, and canvas constellate to appropriate a room from Alfred Hitchcock’s film, Vertigo (1958). Frazor’s interests in the film lies in how Hitchcock’s camera technique, the trombone zoom utilizes distorted perspective to unhinge the viewer and evoke a disorienting effect. In this installation, Frazor transforms this camera effect to analog techniques, warping viewpoints and weaving together perspective lines.

Weston Frazor graduated from the MFA Fine Arts program in 2016. See more of his work here.
