> DESCRIPTION

Joe Blaustein’s new work celebrates, and pokes fun at, aging.  Everyone experiences time’s inevitable ticking, the way it changes and defines us, the joys of our memories and experiences, and revulsion with how our bodies betray us.  Blaustein’s work can be seen as a metaphor for the aging process.  He works over and over, building on the past, erasing, restoring, contemplating the journey, where he has been, where it will go.  These are works filled with joy and sorrow, humor and melancholy, reflections on a long life lived and much left to do.
