Maelstrom at Eisentrager Howard Gallery at University of Nebraska Lincoln, 2010
This work is a confrontation with the conflict between our everyday activities, and the fleetingness of our existence. We are dragged through time and through space, but ultimately we are unavoidably lost in a swirl of oblivion. Given this dissonance I questioned the meaning of our everyday activities. Can we find satisfaction with what we do? And why do we even do it? The case I try to make is largely referring to myself, which gives my work an undeniable autobiographical component.
