January 23-March 8, 2018
Sussel Gallery

(Please note that WE, THE MASSES will be screened four times an hour and starts on the quarter hour.)

A self-described “maker of worlds,” Los Angeles-based artist Robyn O’Neil’s wry humor infuses her well-known apocalyptic drawings—ten years of which form the basis for the award-winning short film, WE, THE MASSES, 2011. After attending Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School where she met Irish director Eoghan Kidney, the two teamed up to bring O’Neil’s drawings to life in a thirteen-minute, stop motion animation. The film explores futility, hope, and self-inflicted wounds as it swings between the foibles of human nature and the epic sweep of the natural world. Actions include a sweatsuit wearing man falling out of foreboding grey clouds, fruitless encounters with a group of similarly attired men, and a tsunami that engulfs the encampment. While seemingly a linear narrative, resolution never arrives because, as the artist states, “Endings can be inconclusive, but yet are still called ‘endings.’ They are also starting points; things must end so that something else will happen.”

Supported by a grant from the Irish Film Board, WE, THE MASSES is presented at the CWAM courtesy of the artist and Susan Inglett Gallery, New York. The recently published book, Robyn O’Neil: Twenty Years of Drawing (2017) is available through Archon Projects.
