Referencing familiar symbols, popular icons, and imagery from contemporary screen life, Neukamp plays in her works with mechanisms of visual understanding. Images that have been originally devised to transmit instant information, are in Neukamp’s works rendered ineffective and fundamentally ambiguous. They are tilted, enlarged, multiplied, and turned into enigmatic silhouettes, which absorb the viewer into a puzzling decryption game. The oscillation between luminous three-dimensional forms and flat monochromatic surfaces furthers a sense of ambiguity and completely frees the graphic forms from any ties to their previous contexts. While certain of their fragments encourage faint identification, the moment of actual recognition continually eludes the viewer.
