white lies by Soledad Arias
In a series of works in neon, Soledad Arias presents evocative words and phrases written in light. In White Lies, she creates a visual representation that allows for multiple interpretations. “White” acts as both a description of the neon object, as well as a component of the phrase “white lies.” By removing any context for the phrase, Arias prods viewers to construct their own narrative. In the tradition of Lawrence Weiner, Jenny Holzer, and Tracey Emin, Arias creates objects which play on visual and textual languages simultaneously.
