About Conjunctions | Disambiguation

Conjunction is a painting technique using various styles, but nevertheless differs considerably from conventional techniques such as Collage, Combine Painting, Assemblage and Mixed Media, a term which is frequently used in the art market.

The most distinctive feature is that Conjunctions highly accentuate a varied surface structure. The scenery is displayed in various materials, such as, acrylic, ink and oil, even silk and ceramics. Each picture element is clearly stylistically separated from others, they represent different identities and therefore are seen through other perceptions.
In other words, different visual impressions, stimulate a performative process by which the viewer changes between visual perceptions and ways of thinking. Being displayed in a single picture, these multiple perceptions (models of thought, paradigms) melt to a unity, just like different cultural ways of thinking interweave within international communities of our globalized world.

On account of their heterogeneous structure the artist Arthur Poor originally called his works »heterogenous conjunction paintings«, succinctly: Conjunctions.

In linguistics Conjunction is a word that produces syntactic connections between words, word groups, parts of sentences or whole sentences and at the same time expresses content relations between the linked elements.
Mathematics and computer science, apply the concept of Conjunction when executing the so-called »AND-function« in binary logic as well as multi-valued logic.
Conjunctions depict an open global world view, that can always be extended by following additions, they stand for flexibility, fragmentarization and plurality.
