This drawing was one of the first in a series of geometric abstract work in which I'm still exploring. The genesis of this piece was to simply relocate the vanishing point away from the center of the composition towards the right hand side. The result is a warped looking tunnel that also embodies itself as a pyramid. The human forms along the drawing direct the viewer to see this, as in fact, a tunnel. The title is a dry humored and existential comment of the longevity of a tunnel without a definite endpoint and imagines such as a labyrinth, because, who would want to be stuck in an eternal tunnel. This drawing was executed, like the other small drawings, rather quickly in three days or 24 hours.
