Selectors' Comments:
Deconoclasm is part Brick Lane boutique knick-knack, part charity shop record cover with a 70's typeface. It looks like it meant something once, to people who were cool decades ago.

Artist's Statement:
Part of this work is purely decorative; however it does condemn making use of innovations, especially the broad use of exposé. Ideally though, by the start, the highly stylized begins to be dropped in favour of the faithful, of the rough, of the cubed plank.
