The Museum Prints (monotypes)
I have become increasingly interested in what I call “Museumification” i.e. the placement in a new environment with straight walls and glass cabinets of historical objects such as Roman artefacts, taxidermied carcasses and skeletons of extinct animals and the like. The fundamental beauty of those objects and the way they are made more beautiful and somehow elevated by the incongruousness of their surroundings. The context changes the object out of all recognition so it seems that our preserving of history is more subjective than objective and barely real at all.
