Conundrum is an installation of paintings, found objects and personal ephemera addressing invisibility, otherness and illusions of safety by Randi Matushevitz. This work engages the audience in a dialogue about the emotional collateral of the disparity between the "haves and the have-nots." We all experience the encounter with the invisible faceless passerby, and we all participate in a social system built on disconnected engagement - screen-time. Matushevitz uses reference material from her middle-class neighborhood which reflects the increase in working homeless families, incidents of gun violence, and dramatic rise in emotional mania. "Conundrum" highlights the fact that many of us live in a state of illusion where entitlement, safety and security are only a barrier to hide the disparity and inhumanity that others live.
