About Signs of Nothing
“The monumental roadside signs that alert us to the presence of restaurants, motels, stores and also gas stations are an essential part of the American psyche. These giant signs, often illuminated by neon and standing upwards of forty feet tall, are the secular architecture of the post war collective unconscious, their haloed glow a replacement for the religious iconography and public statues. Seen from a car, or indeed in Andy Burgess’s photographs. They stand like sentinels in the distance, and so we raise our eyes in reverential awe and deference to these proud icons of graphic design splendor…” - Dr. Alex Gordon “His crisp black and white images, simple and striking, are stripped of color as well as content, as if mourning the lost dreams of the signs’ heyday.” -Review by Wayne Swanson
