lightbox photograph

The image in the lightbox Neighbors is drawn from a 1960s snapshot slide of two of the artist's neighbors. They wear highly contrasting bright-colored patterned shirts and stand arm-in-arm in front of a floral-patterned curtain. The collision of colorful patterns is made all the more vivid by the lightbox's glow which also amplifies the look of the original transparency. Their attire and room décor reflect a particularly American notion of the exotic, a topic central to Moreau's oeuvre. These textile patterns are also transferred to the cane backing and seats of two chairs positioned on the opposite side of the gallery.
