Another Day in Paradise
A collaboration by Brad Spence, Keaton Macon, Andy Brown
In his 1863 essay entitled "Nature", Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Build, therefore, your own world. As fast as you conform your life to the pure idea in your mind, that will unfold its proportions." We have used this transcendentalist approach at conquering the rugged West and Space, and then more abstract frontiers like minds (ideological conquest of the Cold War). The work in "Another Day in Paradise" addresses America's obsession with excess, progress, and prosperity and the apparent failings/trappings of our "city on a hill" mentality by using the unowned and ever abundant frontier of the pictorial culture/world.
PØST is pleased to present the part two in collaboration with LBCC Art Gallery (artgallery.lbcc.edu) presenting the part one of Another Day In Paradise.
