rough / theme
Coarse like a pelt or the chin of an unshaven man, blocked out like an unrehearsed play or a manuscript in early draft, crude as colonial manners, bumpy as a Channel crossing, unpolished as the rushes of a film. Approximate, difficult, rugged, ungentle. Rough is yet to be exploited or refined or civilized or tamed.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
