Essential Workers, is a form of undercover reportage and documentation presenting working conditions of hourly laborers at the front end of consumerism in the United States of America. The series expands on references to time that form undercurrents in much of my work - cyclical and paused, geological and momentary, lost and seized, contemplative and purchased. In the apparent anonymity of market machinations, time has an hourly price.
The series consists of over 50-plus, and ongoing, drawings, each 9x12-inches, Prismacolor pencil on waxed Stonehenge paper. The series has been exhibited at the Herron School of Art Galleries, Purdue in Indianapolis, the Red Line Contemporary Art Center in Denver, the MINT Gallery, Atlanta as part of the 2020 Annual Juried exhibition, juried by Sarah Higgins, art director of Art Papers; Little Things 2020 at Swan Coach House, and is scheduled for exhibition at the Spalding Nix Gallery in January 2021.
