- Orozco reinvents everyday objects, taking them out of context or manipulating them slightly, to make them seem more unusual (I plan to do this!) examples: abstracted washing lines/laundry in 'Lintels', collected and laid out pieces of tyres, spat-out toothpaste turned into patterns...
- In his famous piece 'Black Kites' (from the exhibition poster) he has pain-stakingly drawn squares onto a human skull.*
- In paintings like 'The Eye of Go' the artist uses black circles to create a sense of the scientific, as well as emulating the strange bubbles in 'First was the Spitting' (paintings which use toothpaste/spit as a starting point)
*this could be relevant to what I am doing with painting on doll's faces with black ink.
