A Life

These four images act as companion pieces to the etching series "The Four" which include Setting the Precedent, The Condition of Postmodernity, Kierkegaard's Dilemma and The Ultimate View. Where we were once looking through the character's eyes, we are now looking directly at him as he lives out a typical life.  Our default state, one we are born into and thus easily reverted to, is fear. The pain of hardship and failure is constantly looming over our heads. We feel immense sorrow when confronted with our mortality and the burden in places on those closest to us. At the end there is nothing but fury for the unfairness and cruelty of existence. 

The Fear

The Pain

The Sorrow

The Fury
