“The use of distinction as the subject matter aligns the artwork with the context of the viewer in that we function based on our continual stream of perceptual discernment of the distinctions in the world around us. Our intellectual development is an amalgamation of these distinctions, thus the platform for understanding that which we are currently experiencing is linked to the context of our lived experience.”

Max Yawney Live

Quaint is a simplified range of possibility.
The loss of possibility condenses the experience of renewed context, creating a void within the Reference / Inference model of the non-quaint. The non-quaint or less quaint, situation has a broader band of possibilities for renewing contextual foundation.
