Classical statues
have always evoked in us
an ambivalent sense of both permanence
and deterioration. Even when the faces are
no longer discernible, the petrified robes now
stand as carriers of enduring symbols and meanings.


These assemblages depict ageless human
shapes embodied by classical draped
robes  and  T-shirts.  Modern
T-shirts will also be classical
garments later on
in history.
