    About The Work

    This animated silkscreen work, Untitled (Don't Cry for this One, He Went to Law School), by prominent writer and artist Dave Eggers is from a larger project undertaken in the last few years. Pairing drawings of various animals with simple text, Eggers engages his viewers in a humorous, philosophical dialogue. Says Eggers of the pieces, “These paintings evolved to include an array of mammals, and an array of dialogues. Sometimes the animals question their existence or purpose. Sometimes a passage from the Old Testament surrounds them and in some way gives them a sense of mission, but usually there exists tension between the animal and an unseen God, and in all cases I try to bring out the soul of the animal in some way.” Proceeds from these works will go to support Eggers’ non-profit foundation ScholarMatch, which pairs up disadvantaged college students with financial donors.
