About The Artwork

Ryan Carrington’s work addresses the shift in public perspective towards the culturally defined roles of blue and white-collar workers in the United States. It bridges issues of labor, class, work ethic and economics with my personal and family history. Within his studio practice, Carrington delves deep into processes that parallel the monotony and tedium that laborers endure. By using construction materials directly off the shelf from Home Depot, pieces of uniforms that represent America’s workforce, and performing acts of labor while dressed as a CEO, Carrington invites a discussion about the ever-changing class struggle in the United States. His intent is to provide a conduit for empathy between our stratified society by inspiring dialogue across communities of people that represent the corners of our culture, history and socio-economic status.
