Pterodactyl Cries: Art, Abstraction, and Apocalypse
Erik ReeL

Pointing out that the long arc of human intellectual history has been toward greater abstraction, ReeL develops a wide ranging discourse on abstraction in visual art and its relationships to referentiality, internality, history, oppression, and apocalypse. Including an indictment of materialism on a variety of distinct registers, connections are made to the misuse of history in support of the injustices of sexism, racism, and colonialism through a tyranny of false evidence and deceit.
