banality

Banality, normality, regularity, repetition, and routine are great artistic themes because they are integral to everyone's life, though sometimes we wish they weren't. Art so often deals with greatness, the special, uniqueness, the extraordinary - this allows we viewers to escape our own banality for a moment or two. Here are the pictures on lope.ca that go the opposite direction, playing with normality and routine. Related themes: despair and personal%self-portraits .
