the fragments he had grieved over in The Waste Land.”

and binds them together . . . .

Plastic Elements

Filed under: General — Tags: , , — m759 @ 7:07 AM

"Step by step, Kepes follows the liberation of the plastic elements:
lines, planes, and colors, and the creation of a world of forms of our own.
The spatial conception interconnects the meaning fragments and
binds them together just as in another period perspective did when it used
a single station point for naturalistic representation."
