ALLISON, ORLANDO – POP ART CIRCA 1900’s
The central image was taken from a turn of the century Edward Curtis photo of a young man
from the village of Moenkopi on Third Mesa, Arizona. The image was found in the Library of
Congress archives. What initially garnered my interest was how striking the individual appeared
in the photograph. His attire was really an intriguing relic of the past causing me to wonder
about the young man’s life in his utilitarian dress up. With little information about the person’s
life, my thoughts began to wonder.
These relics from the past must be brought through a transformation and assimilated into the
qualities of today. Into the new possibilities, into the new vision of the universe. these must
be kept alive. Artist sole duty and function is the mythologization of the environment and the
world. the myths of the old must be regenerated if they’re going to have any impact.
