The historian Kenneth Clark purveyed the eventual end to abstraction, citing a cultural need for a fidelity to the real world in real time imagery. In a world significantly gutted with imagery, abstraction at present is about creating a new space in which to think about present day life.
Pissed Elegant is representative of those concerns past and present.
