Art: convocation by Artist C. k. Agathocleous
convocation | 10"x10" | oil on linen panel

What makes a group of disparate objects look united when we view it? One thing is the lighting of the objects. Our vision is dependent fully on light and in the real world objects are all lit by ambient lighting of a certain color (wavelength), intensity, angle, etc. This makes the group of objects "go together". Another important factor, the most important maybe, is how we conceptualize what we see. A group of disparate objects can become a yard when we see a fence around it or a neighborhood when we realize we are viewing an aerial photo. What we see and what we think are impossible to separate.   

In a painting, you can use style, simplicity, repetition, composition, title all to unite it into a whole. The danger with the titles is that they can limit what you see as well as add to it. Please feel free to disregard the titles in these works to free up your vision.
