Erosion is the gradual weathering of soil and rock caused by wind, water, and other natural forces. One thing is certain: the ground we stand on is falling from beneath our feet. Ache of Erosion is an exhibition of paintings exploring the condition of existence through the mechanism of larger than life entropic forces, both celebrating and questioning what it means to feel human.
