"Mutatis Mutandis" is a Latin phrase meaning "only the necessary changes have been made". The phrase calls attention to differences between the current state of things and the previous. It can be understood as meaning "acknowledging the difference between the two" or (more succinctly) as "acknowledging differences."
Click Mort's work centers on indiscreet modifications to existing porcelain figurines. Each piece is a unique consolidation of two or more previously unrelated figures, with extensive cutting, sculpting, sanding, and painting required to unify them into a new, seamless whole. The result is kitsch resurrected in a still vaguely familiar but somewhat less cozy form. Click's recapitated figures have found their way into several of the premeire collections of post-pop art via exhibitions in Pasadena, Los Angeles and Waxahachie, Texas.The overwhelming majority of his patrons collect multiple pieces.
Mr. Mort's formal training consists of a single high school ceramics class, where the tendency of his pieces to explode when fired eventually led to him being banned from the kiln.He has since opted to work only with pre-fired materials.
Mutatis Mutandis is Click Mort's third feature exhibition at La Luz de Jesus.
