The conceptual bias of this work is the artist as filter. Minelli is engaged with the quickness of popular culture and mimics this resolve in the way he feels his way through the mystery of art making without foresight. As long as celebrity exists, there will be fantastic stories that arise from the phenomenon. The method of this work relies on a similar path of certainty.

The opening night was packed and the crowd, for an art show, uncharacteristically exuberant. A huge deficit to scale played out between the pieces exhibited. The tiny polymer clay “Souvenirs” require close engagement while the protrusions of the larger works keep examination at a distance. There was no single stance to be taken so a strange and beautiful dance ensued.
