Selected Reading (Nausea) is part of Eric Yahnker's ongoing series of drawings which combine famous figures - both real and fictional - with hand-selected works of literature. In this print, Yahnker places Jean-Paul Sartre's existential masterwork Nausea in the hands of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, creating an image of lost innocence in which we can literally see the pursuit of meaning rendered meaningless. According to Yahnker, "enlightenment and entertainment marinate in the same murky meatloaf."
Framing options are black or white painted wood, 3/4" wide flat face and 1" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
