In Mr. Bunch’s introduction to this book an insightful trove of wisdom is revealed. It diagrams the utility of inspecting the Art of Found Object as a means for the artist to express, through this medium, a sense of subjective objectivity. He outlines the key points of his rationale that links collage and assemblage to found object.
As an art critic I take issue with the individual artists’ role in the manner it affects some viewers’ limited capacity to “understand” the work.
There is the exquisite morbidity of Dario Robleto whose work tends to under-whelm in subject matter as it overwhelms in psychological residue.
The close definition of John Mark Sager’s “Hagia Sophia” (2010) with David McManaway’s “Jomo Board #2” (1968).
Also the mono-chromatic array of Jim Love’s “Area Code” (1962) and the countless later imitations of such.
Mr. Bunch succeeds in bridging the difficult task of taming one of Art’s wild child, which is the making of art from object instead of subject. All in all this is a great and valuable book that will inspire and create future attempts in connecting the numerous tangents that make up the matter of art.
I would also like to make an argument for Volume 2 of this book to be one based on the notion of “Found Concept”.
