Motivation

Anne Gates's avatar Anne Gates

In an exploration of human motivation, looking at the push and pull of impulse, desire, and ultimately decision-making, commonalities are discovered. There is a willingness and need for personal wholeness, for strong and meaningful interactions. Every connection is an opportunity. What drives these needs and wants is sometimes manifested as a darker motive. In these times we forget that we are part of a larger collective, then the individual’s needs are put before that of the whole. These themes are presented through the use of contrasting materials, of obsessive labor and through the object; the eggshell that was never meant to remain unbroken.
