The Venetian Blackamoor,  Louis St.Lewis
The Venetian Blackamoor

Assemblage is radical. It offers no single field of pressence; no canvas, no homogeneous stone, no flat screen. There is no single medium that could flatten the work into a simple object of contemplation, a pattern of differences all made of the same stuff and all dating from the same year. Instead we have a pattern of differences made of only differences. "Mixed Media" has seldom meant so much.
