    Utilizing the infnite potential and possibilities of his assorted materials, Elliott Hundley’s works create dense dreamscapes, incorporating the sentimental and the symbolic into intricate narratives. The present lot, Monument, 2004, exquisitely delivers a feast for the eyes, and transforms the act of viewing the work into an escapade of exploration and discovery. Hundley’s elaborate pieces “make a virtue of the phrase ‘begged, borrowed and stolen.’ The recycled objects and dramas in his work raise pointed questions about the relationship between the individual and the growing mass of humanity that seems to be flling the globe to bursting.” (D. Pagel, “Deftly Playing with Art History”, Los Angeles Times, March 13, 2009).
