The Fabric of Images

The play between hand-made and
ready-made works has had many
plots and subplots in the art of
the last 100 years, mostly fueled
by the conflict felt by some artists
between the need to critique
painting or sculpture as dead
end mediums and the desire
to still negotiate them as sites
where an alternative mode of
Self-expression or Id-expression
could be developed. The novel
use (at least at first sight) made
by Kent Henricksen of different
kinds of fabric with a decorative
pattern (pieces of monochromatic
toiles de Jouy, for instance, or
instead of upholstery tapestries)
as an ironic/provocative surrogate
for the blank canvas, and
therefore for a predictable
pictorial re-presentation, is
not an absolute novelty per se.
