ARCHAIC PROCESSION

When Karam began fragmenting the linearity of his Archaic Procession into individual elements, they took a different conceptual direction. When in procession, they evoked time, both eternal and ephemeral, and passing peoples, plants, and creatures – a wealth of life forms. Fragmented, each one brought its unique character, whether engaging, symbolic, mischievous, or pensive, to its context. Karam called them Toys; experimenting with size, texture, and different materials to create a body of small, medium and large-scale sculptures.
