Cooper A Holoweski
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is an investigation into the support structures of our everyday lives. What are the unseen forces that drive our global economy and how do they affect / reflect us on a personal level? I explore the faith we have placed in economic theories and financial systems through imagery and text that references advertising, infrastructure, religion, and faith. As a native of Detroit, Michigan, images of infrastructure and machinery carry a particular resonance with me. In my work the machine is simultaneously a stand-in for the figure and an icon of modernity, rationalism, and the global economy. The narrative of my machine is one of fallible logic that is both personal and globally systemic. The machine is consistently over-extending itself, stacking unsustainably, and, with the re-assertion of gravity and our faith tested, the machine collapses only to rebuild itself once again. We expand and contract, build up and break down, we strive for rational perfection only to more deeply provoke the irrational. Our greatest triumphs and our greatest faults are reflected in our inventions and magnified in our global systems.
