Like a storyboard of inexplicable moments, this panoramic piece assembles abstracted explosions of marks and gestures in front of a sleek expanse of Ben-Day inspired dots. As in much of Kahn's work, pop pithiness marries full-on expressiveness, creating a push and pull between tidiness and rawness. The "I.L.T." of the title stands for Identified Love Target, and this acronym gets at the feeling of the piece: emotional states have been targeted and distilled into accessible what becomes a narrative about a person's relationship with the phenomenon of "choice," itself.
