In North American history, early colonial explorers sailed across oceans to discover 'new' lands, leaving flags rooted to a spot as proud ideological declarations of self-derived ownership. For the past industrialized/capitalist century, in lieu of flags, advertising billboards are being left behind - signs acting as heavy urban footprints alongside paved roads, etched into the surrounding landscapes.

It's a Sign presents large individual portraits of outdoor signage, devoid of their original consumer messages, made blank over time. Portrayed as solitary portraits on location in nature, they question the initial placement of the billboards: What do they currently represent? What is nature/natural? Though the signs stand in symmetrical contrast to their surrounding environment's 'natural' disorder, they are washed clean by that very disorder, potentially creating a call for new beginnings.
