Artist's Statement

"Cotton Balls and Swabs" by Erin Eveland.

Containers are meant to hold things. Sometimes a container is designed to hold something specific. Other times it is not, but it is given a purpose. In both cases, containers are meant to be filled.

Contents explores the juxtaposition containers and what we put in them. What we fill them with and how we give them purpose. Our lives can be considered containers and those who fill it become the contents.
