DESCRIPTION

In this new series of assemblages, which for the first time includes video, Rondle West breaks down the walls of opera and gives the viewer a fresh entry into this highly refined world. Drawing upon Mozart's The Magic Flute, West takes classic representations and ideas as the base of his concepts and overlays them, both figuratively and literally, with contemporary ephemera "to shape and shade the personalities, perceptions, and interconnections of these time-worn figures." With his assemblages of seemingly unrelated objects, West weaves a story of the unconscious and pokes fun at the seriousness of the opera world.
