Louis St.Lewis  Assemblage

St.Lewis makes a sly reference to homogeneity, with those nails. Everything is nailed together with such conspicuous excess: too many nails, the nails are too big, there is much too much of every nail left over... and then the nail heads are painted. The nails are aggressive, in-your-face marks of the process of assembly itself, perhaps the one voice in these portraits that still belongs to the artist himself.
