TIME, acrylic on canvas, 60x48. TIME is a construct created by humans to regulate life. We are the only animal that lives by the clock, and it creates a sense of linear movement stretching in two directions. We can only travel in one of those two directions. Time is endless, without shape, and certainly expands in every direction, but we have made time a sort of plank that we must walk; a balance beam that forces us in a single direction "forward". It does serve us, in the same way that many of our constructs serve us as social beings. In our construct of Time each act is irretrievable and indelible, and our understanding of self-worth is weighed accordingly. It is a tight rope from which there is no exit. We must walk it or fall, and some do fall - the homeless, the mentally ill... This balancing act requires discipline and fortitude, but most of all it requires community. It is community that supports the construct and helps keep us from losing our balance.
