The Armory Show - Robert Devriendt

In the booth of the Belgian gallery Baronian Francy, I found myself drawn to two collections of tiny and intricately crafted paintings on tiny canvases by
Robery Devriendt. These were both titled "Le Noveau Rituel" and were each of a different, seemingly unrelated image, such as a ramshead, a piece of furniture or a womans face. Apparently, Devriendt really likes sequences, and these seemingly unrelated paintings begin to create a story, in the same way that the story creating flash cards create a story, a possibly random combination.

I wanted Caroline to see this.
