The first piece for which it became clear to me that my preoccupation with turning complex disordered scenes into orderly presentations of overt and covert patterns could echo, in a striking way, the renaissance paintings of the Family Brueghel, was working through cuts of the photograph that became the basis for Paired Observations. This dates from June 2015.
The Battle of Carnival of Lent, Pieter Bruegel the Younger, is a favorite of mine.
Hustle and bustle unfolded in the streaming of life. . . Carnival v. Lent! Chaos v. Order!
