Art [Not Photography]

homage to felix gonzalez-torres's "untitled (perfect lovers)" 

Cut-paper collage.

I admit it: I'm a sucker for conceptual art—for art that starts out in the artist's head, followed by figuring out a way to represent that mental concept in a physical form of some kind.

But the trouble with conceptual art is, it usually requires an explanation. Which means the viewer has to sit there or stand there and read the explanation--as you are having to read this explanation. (If you've made it this far, I thank you.)

So it is with Felix Gonzales-Torres's "Untitled (Perfect Lovers)." How do two clocks, which appear to be on very close to the same time, represent the concept of "perfect lovers"?

I really like this artwork, so I made an homage to it by mounting it on a rather "pop" background. Then I got around the problem of its being a conceptual piece, by appending an explanation. It's not the only possible explanation. But it should get you started on thinking about this artwork. Enjoy!
