Ethan Murrow

American , 1975 -

"For three years I have been thinking about failure. It seems to me that there is a fragile line between reckless obsession and brilliant success. My work resides in this area, applauding ridiculous pursuits and cringing at doomed experimentation. To examine these issues I create fictional narratives rooted in the historical fact that humans will attempt anything.

I frequently play the central figure in the performances, which form the backbone of the drawings. As a result, I consciously embroil myself in a history of aspiration filled with brilliant new finds and ignorant mistakes."
