Avenues of Mendacity
Ink and gouache on paper
30” x 70”
The Mendacity project is a critique of the conventional method of representing and producing architecture. The apposition of elements at all scales simultaneously is presented as a temporal experience in support of Paul Valéry’s contention that, in architecture, “there are no details in execution”. Because to name something a “detail” is to name its opposite as well, and the work of architecture is more likely all details making an irreducible whole.
The Mendacity project includes 2 large drawings and several mixed media constructions.
