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.
