About the Work
“The deflating white whale symbolizes a cyclical end to obsession. Much like a beached whale, which dies when it’s
non-buoyant mass collapses under its own weight, human obsession
frequently spirals out of control until its bearer can no longer support
its mass. …it inflates until full and then slowly deflates, collapsing
inward on itself, and without witness, the cycle begins anew.”
Similar to its original installation in the desert of Marfa, TX, The
Dying Gaul installed in landlocked Colorado will be left out to dry. The
sculpture will fill the east wing of the Philip J. Steele Gallery along
with photographs of the piece in situ.
