One of the key characteristics of the art of Hany Armanious is its playful logic of analogy. This includes analogies based upon likeness or resemblance of material, form, function, process as well as linguistic analogy—puns, homonyms, rhymes, anagrams and other forms of word play. Armanious treats materials and words as equally malleable things. This is the poetic and procreative logic of the work and is what sets it in motion.
