Funerals Mike Egan (Pittburgh, PA)
VIEW AVAILABLE WORKS ONLINE
In his newest body of work, Pittsburgh, PA artist Mike Egan looks back on his time spent working in funeral homes. Surrounded by death and mourning, Mike started painting not only the stories of those who have passed, but the stories of those left behind after one's passing; the mourners, the lovers, the hurt and the relieved. Funerals shows death in a tongue-in-cheek perspective of the one's who have passed, the ones who survived, and the people who deal with death on a day to day, the clergy. Devils and crosses, Clergymen spitting blood, and skeletons smoking pipes; Funerals shows satire in death and the rituals of saying goodbye.
