Fitting in Together is an exploration of Hobbs’ camouflage designs where a human figure on all fours is disrupted by a contrasting pattern of dappled light shapes across the surface of the body.
As with Pop-up Forest, this print is one of the early studies created for the Permanent Culture exhibitions held at DKP in 2015. These works are informed by Hobbs’ interrogation of the hiddenness of the David Krut gallery in Cape Town, which is nestled in the Newlands Forest.
“Historically, such leafy conditions have not been my focus. The context lead me to conduct a lengthy investigation into First and Second World War defence systems on the Western Cape Peninsula to make work towards the show” – Hobbs.
