With reference to the product warning symbols displayed on children's toys, Gekko's "Choking Hazard" series comments on pornography; its pervasiveness
and the role it plays in modern life.
Stylised images which appear simplistic upon first view, are belied by the deliberate and precise arrangement of the objects which allows the trompe-l'oeil motif to
emerge. By presenting the figures in silhouette Gekko effectively shines a spotlight upon, what are essentially, private acts. The yellow background, like light through a window, bringing much
needed warmth to an otherwise stark and desolate tableau.
