Toilet (A) is part of John Opera’s series of cyanotype–on–linen works from 2014, which present seemingly banal objects encountered in daily life. The double exposure technique and the subject matter of a toilet seat recalls several early 20th century experimental photographs by artists such as Man Ray and Lee Miller, as well as the modernist studies of Edward Weston. Opera holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has recently exhibited at spaces including DOCUMENT, The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Transformer Station, Cleveland, and Higher Pictures, NY.
