Ordo Ab Chao

I’ve been working on several things, but this one was on my drawing table for many months. It’s a design for 13 Bricks Clothing. I will probably write up a process post at some point, but for now I’m just eager to share it.

I will also inform you where and when the t-shirts will be available. I’m quite proud of this piece, hopefully folks dig it and buy the crap out of it. I’m excited about the notion of seeing one of these in the wild. If you want to see it in more detail go to ugisart.com and click on fullscreen.

Ordo Ab Chao

I see you there, Chaos
Standing there staring at me
Holding my world by a thread
A snowglobe that rolls toward the edge.

We’ve been in deadlock for awhile
And one of us is about to give in
But either way the wind blows
You always seem to win.

I’ve mailed you letters that get lost in the mail
But even chainmail lets a sword through sometimes
I’ve knocked on wood that send tremors into the earth
Your diamond mine just a dime in mind.

You can’t keep this up forever Chaos
One day I will predict your nature
And prove that an immovable object
Can halt an unstoppable force.

I say this while literally watching my world come crashing down
Like a bull in a China shop
You’re the meteor that ruined town.

They say Order emerges from Chaos
But I think Order is just
The ugly duckling that got away
From us and got lost

Chaos as revitalization has a long and continuing history in Western civilization, and, with the French Revolution, it gained a new vitality as revolution and sexual chaos became the means to social regeneration. In the world of art, the creative artist came to be identified as of necessity with a social and sexual anarchist, and in popular thinking order and morality came to mean monotony and devitalizing, enervating palls, whereas lawlessness means liberty and power.



The middle-aged ‘fling’ and sexual license came into being as a grasping after renewal, and Negress prostitutes came to be used as a 'change of luck’ device, an especial sin against order as a means of a recharging of luck and power. Basic to all these manifestations, from ancient Egypt through Caesar to modern man, is one common hope: destroy order to create order afresh, or, even more bluntly, destroy order to create order.
