From the series Gotham, which twists 19th century luxury New York apartment buildings into otherworldly vignettes, Dorilton (2015) re-imagines a Beux-Arts façade as a kind of skin. Cut open, the architectural flesh reveals innards made of fur and luxury fabrics. Psycho-sexual, seductive, and also menacing, Dorilton evokes collective fears about wealth and power.
