Stiler’s sculptural forms reference and reconstruct classical iconography from artist-constructed “rubble.” The ancient-seeming silhouettes are, at first glance, authoritative in their connection to this canon of history. However, closer inspection of their mash-up elements – which conflate imagery and objects that span centuries and societies – reveal the works to be peculiar interpretations of historical reality. Stiler’s distorted quotation of the familiar and banal classical nude exposes the absence of a single, eternal “truth.”
