Laura Wright: Jars n' Jugs

This work was inspired by my good natured neighbor Bill who is a bus and truck driver as well as vetern.

Like many artists, I have spent a lot of time in bars working and drinking.  This was my first show after earning my first MFA.  It was also post 9/11, after the first dot com crash, and at the beginning of the second Iraq war, so needless to say, it was a disappointing time for many.  The title of the show, however, was inspired by my good natured neighbor Bill who is a bus and truck driver as well as vetern.  We met up in front of our places on the sidewalk to talk as we often did.  Bill had on an off color t-shirt, as he often did.  This one had illustrations of all the different kind of boobs a woman could have.  As a feminist, and one with a wicked sense of humor, I had no choice but to make a show inspired by crass humor at an unbelieveable time.
