Everything Must Go depicts the collision of residential and industrial spaces; a white clapboard house being torn apart from the inside by an industrial complex. The piece is rendered in brief and general forms, evoking a sense of rapid production & consumption. This piece is an exploration of dualities: residential & industrial, personal & private, construction & destruction. These dualities are further explored through a language of form which pairs elements which are both highly finished and completely raw, explicit and evocative. Everything Must Go leaves one wondering whether one is destroying the other or are they co-dependent?
