portfolio: mosaic of utter charm

 

The ancient Greek philosophers considered categories to be angels.
These collage elements survive as representatives of a category of
objects transcending formal content as elements of composition.
The category then becomes a collection of decontextualized objects
of attention, removing them from the role of constituent and placing
them in the realm of "Platonic Form" or "Platonic Ideal". There is no
compositional exercise here. There is only the sense of the iconic,
amplified in some cases by their reference as a cultural utility which
oscillate between acting as indicators of cultural identity and
indicators of transcultural universality.
