A Wolf in the Fold: An Installation by Rick O'Brien
August 6, 2011 - October 3, 2011
Opening Reception / Aug 6, 7:00PM - 10:00PM

This new work by artist Rick O'Brien observes the sum of who we are, the fundamental elements we collectively share, and the individual experiences which showcase the unique.

It is the differences that present a perceived danger to the established norm. By creating a defense mechanism which alienates effort, we are free to admire and then condemn those attempting to better themselves. The innocent act of self exploration provides us the obstacles we must endure through life.

Human frailty and fortitude are at the heart of most of O'Brien's work. A Wolf in the Fold embodies the struggle between human ambition and toil, and the boundaries we impose.
