Juxtaposition

A soothing cave - my refuge of…
Minimal things - maximum order.
Bolster me to seek out - to enjoy -
This stage of actors from many plays.

* Pastiche
“Pressed to its limits, artistic juxtaposition becomes what is sometimes termed pastiche. The goal of this tactic, which has been employed in both high-culture and pop-culture contexts (e.g., MTV videos), is to barrage the viewer with incongruous, even clashing images that call into question any sense of objective meaning.”
(Stanley James Grenz, A Primer on Postmodernism. Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1996)

…and what a position…

Is this what they call pastiche*? BTW - this is not in my apartment in case you are wondering….

Having done my back in last week shovelling snow, this position is even further from the realms of possibility then it usually would be... ouch!

An unusual pose to make a sculpture in. Not sure I'd want this angle in full view every day!
