The Sacristy Gallery at Epiphany Center for the Arts

March 31, 2023 to May 13, 2023

 

With imagery revolving around workers in food service, retail, and factories, Spine. pays tribute to the working class. Most Americans belong to the working or middle class, and are the group that is most vulnerable to exploitation in the workplace. Celebrity worship culture and media coverage have caused many to aspire to unattainable ideals and be more inclined to ignore and silence the working class. Working-class people are the backbone of American life, and are interfaced with at every level in day-to-day interactions. This body of work by artist Julian Adon Alexander is an effort to humanize and show appreciation for these lines of work, coming from someone who has worked in these industries himself.
