Reconsidering Sisyphus
1993-4 Granite and steel, 8.5'h x16'w x6'd

Commissioned by the NJ State Council on the Arts - Arts Inclusion Program and installed at the NJ State College in Jersey City. On one level the work is presented as a self-portrait suggesting the artist's plight is similar to that the of the mythological Sisyphus - that of the perpetual task of "pushing stones up a mountain". On a more serious level the sculpture references the French surrealist writer Albert Camus's famous essay The Myth of Sisyphus which examines. among other things, the concept of work.
