A NEW WORK BY DOUG VARONE


everything is fine is loosely inspired by images, characters, and situations culled from the collection of poems entitled Ballistics by Billy Collins. The work unfolds in seven interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, and aging. With a multi-generational cast of 16 artists, the work delves deep into our memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives.


“This piece,” says Varone, “explores a darker and more disturbing range of emotions than has generally characterized my work. It is about the relationships we’ve all survived and their impact on our lives.”
