Jessica Dalva's new series of 24 sculptures and drawings is an attempt to illustrate the variety of thoughts, rituals and impressions that one experiences throughout a day. Each piece in These Days may represent an entire day, an hour, a single moment or a general feeling that reoccurs over the course of a lifetime. There are demons to be vanquished, mind-numbing tasks to complete, signals to get crossed and decisions to be made. The solitude of each person's day is important to recognize, and acknowledge the sadness as well as the beauty of ultimately being on your own. These pieces were created as a way to comprehend both the fear and the thrill that comes from what is unknown.
