Portfolio > (Laborious Conditions)


Laborious Conditions: Checkouts, 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 48 drawings, each 9x12-inches, Prismacolor pencil on waxed Stonehenge paper. They may be installed in varying quantities according to the curatorial interest. The entire series has been exhibited at the Herron School of Art Galleries, Purdue in Indianapolis, and a smaller set at the Red Line Contemporary Art Center in Denver.
