New York artist Winona Barton-Ballentine's prints of commercial products have a coral-like quality: she photographs them in congregations and swarms. The familiar colors and textures of items like plastic flowers, scissors, decks of cards, and aerosol cans are intensified through the risograph printing process, which distorts the objects' dimensionality and confuses material layers. Barton-Ballentine's nervy, shifting images escape their orderly, mass-produced origins and ask us to look for personality even in the most quotidian of products.
