Artist: Andy Kincaid
Appleton, WI

Location: Inside foyer of Olathe Municipal Services (1385 S Robinson Drive)

Medium: Urethane Rubber

In this piece I have borrowed the stylized human form from a restroom sign to create two life-size figures. The bathroom sign image has become an iconic representation of the man and woman. Recognizing this I have invoked the human scale to facilitate a one to one interaction, examining just what role these icons play in contemporary identity. People will either identify with, or reject, these constructs, but in either respect the viewer imparts an opinion, which becomes reflected in the anonymity of these featureless icons.
