Artist: Chris Nadaskay

Chris Nadasky is a Professor of Art at Union University. Following is an excerpt from a recent showing of his work:

"My work seeks to make the viewer think about the relationship between that technology and the human condition. By placing the polar opposites of mechano-technological and organic forms in juxtaposition, I hope to stimulate conversation about the fragility of human existence, our reliance upon forces outside of ourselves, and the type of archeological evidence we are leaving behind as a culture. They reference the industrial, the technological, the electrical, the mechanical, the organic, the human and the archeological. What will they find when they dig up our leavings? If change does not come – and soon – I fear we will leave behind a dark cultural legacy, memento morii (remembrances of death) that leave behind no hope for the future."

Examples of Mr. Nadaskay's work can be found here.
