Cluster Of Oddities

photoI like the clusters of objects that chart the passage of time in this Brooklyn brownstone.  The diversity of this collection of luxurious antiques, weathered vintage objects and artwork creates a captivating kind of beauty. As writer and actor Carl Hancock Rux says of his collection, “If something is too new, I find myself uncomfortable and out of sorts.  For me collecting odd pieces of furniture and juxtaposing objects is another way of creating poetry”.
