Objects and Meaning through History

In twentieth century America, volumes have been written about art with discussions of craft often an afterthought. For those whose primary interest is focused on three-dimensional objects, there is no specific language or system of evaluation appropriate to their needs. Art history’s use of painting as a singular standard has left three-dimensional objects to adjust to a language largely written from a flattened, two-dimensional perspective. With frustration, scholars and writers attempt to apply a language structured upon the painted image to volumetric form.
