Title: 1+1+1+1=1? Here I wanted to juxtapose dissonant images and seek to create a new whole both within and between the forms. To explore whether the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Or here, that 1+1+1+1=1. Or are we alone in the world, not knowing where we are going or where we have been? Waiting for a leader to show us the way. Waiting for Godot. Waiting for a vaccination? Hepworth stunningly spatially articulated and demonstrated that placing two or more pieces together creates a relationship between them that alters each, achieving synergy, a new totality. Braque said “You put a blob of yellow here and another at the further edge of the canvas: straight away a rapport is established between them” (Tr). Is this a hope that art gives us? The mystical dialectic? Out of opposites, out of disparate parts we can create a new synthesis, a new unity.
