I created this piece at a time when I was beginning my career as a young professional artist after having graduated from college. I found that making time for creating art (and life in general) was becoming a grind. There were never enough hours in the day, and the free time I did have was squandered in meaningless activities. Time was a tyrant in my life. I feel this a common sentiment among many people today. In this sculpture I was able to fight back against this tyrant--even thought the watches have this figure on the ground, he still defiantly struggles to break free.
Struggling with Time shows the preoccupation of American society with the measurement of time. Please visit my web site: www. paulorzech. com to see more views and comments of this work.
