charcoal on paper
44 x 30 in.
Drawings from this series are quick and consumable similar to the objects piles, landscapes, and humans contained in them. They depict the anxious, disposable bodies of working-class Americans; how they resist and overcome hazardous conditions; how they become disfigured and manipulated by age and labor.
Physical labor influences all aspects of living; cultivating a perverted, non-confrontational, and stubborn existence. What can be understood about humanity from these lesser known social zones? An insistence on presenting our collective fears and anxieties as consumable and how to genuinely celebrate all forms of loss.
