Image Reflections - 'An Un-unifed Shelf' / by Ally McGinn

This is a clear example of an unsuccessful work.

 

There are interesting connections here but they are too convoluted, too unconnected and too profuse.

That it is unsuccessful is both an aesthetic and conceptual truth.

Simplicity in one area seems key, if not in aesthetics (as my personal taste seems to lean) then in concept and context.

A good learning point, although an embarrassing one. There are many works like this, they no longer exist but are documented.
