UPLOAD ONLY ONE IMAGE
Opens: Aug 1st - Sept 15th, 2020.
Select Images Posted Weekly - Praxis Online Gallery
Spinning humor out of tragedy is by no means a new phenomenon. Humor, irony and the celebration of the absurd are historic ways of processing fear and tragedy. Humor and absurdity provides a healthy outlet for some people to diffuse feelings of doom and uncertainty - helping people struggling with depression and anxiety of conflicts such as our current global pandemic and civic unrest. People who use humor as a coping strategy have instantaneous access to millions of other people, and we find our niches and networks - Bart Andrews
