Santizo’s Unfolding Whole at Attache

unfolding whole

by igor santizo

“The world is all that is the case.”
_Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

“Individuality is only possible if it unfolds from wholeness.”
_David Bohm.

Within the mobile and portable context of the Attache Gallery, this project is the gathering of cosmological maps. These works are: studies, a collection of exploratory drawings, the effects of black ink on found paper. Done on sheets for music notation, a set of alphabetized index cards and used file folders, these drawn “documents”, consider a simple topological motif.

Emerging initially out of an interest in alchemy and Hermes’ caduceus staff, which portrays two snakes wrapping around a wand. These drawings further explore the theme into abstraction, and into a consideration of cthonic force. Energy, coil, fold, wave, ascent/descent are the signature dynamics of these small works.
