Work and Progress
From Tuesday March 7th to Sunday the 19th, 2017, this solo exhibition was on view at Philadelphia's Tyler School of Art in the Printmaking Department's Gallery suite.
I am influenced by the printmakers of the Federal Arts Project of the WPA, (Works Progress Administration) as these artists and craftsmen were the pioneers of social realism in America during the Great Depression. The body of work shown in Work and Progress is a response to my experience growing up in the post-industrial city of Pittsburgh, PA. Symbols of luck, faith, sorrow, and hope make are manifested in images of the crucifix, the horseshoe and the landscape. Clouds of dust and soot suggest an impending storm or heavy pollution, an optical and spiritual obstruction.
