Nowhere is this performativity more apparent than in his ongoing set of works (mostly paintings and drawings) titled Skin Set (1994 – ongoing). These works, which offer statements about people or entities of various colors (blue, red, yellow, white, fuchsia, etc.), for ex., “Blue People Cannot Conceive of Themselves” highlight the absurdity of language itself. Broadly speaking, these statements do not make literal sense, but they are not quite nonsense either. Taken in groups, the works use a kind of reasoning that encourages a critical eye to systems and claims to logic, justice, and reason. Often longer or less proclamatory text is included in these works, faint asides written for those who look closely to examine the surfaces of the works, which are often littered with marks, doodles, hair, correction fluid, ink, tape, and other media. As time goes on, the writing in Skin Set has evolved, such that in some works, like Oven (2019) the text is nearly illegible, rendered as a field of recognizable and unrecognizable characters.
