Beyond this sculpture, paintings make up the bulk of the show, and Giroux experiments with acrylic, wax, oil, enamel and color pencil in his colorful, layered works - some of which are just about color. The four squares C, M, Y and K form a tetraptych that's based on the color model used in printing - cyan, magenta, yellow and key (or black) - and are arranged in a column.
Other works aren’t as neat. Monster Girls (Wax Atmosphere) and Monster Girls (Neon Lights) are messy, busy paintings that leave hints of what's below the surface - blond girls with sunglasses - as if they're street advertisements layered in graffiti. Works like Stay Focused and Hard in the Paint follow in this loud street-art aesthetic - spray cans and all.
