About the Artwork:

“This has been a difficult year for many. For my own part, the combination of the pandemic, political corruption, widespread misinformation and civil unrest, along with the multiple wildfires currently burning around my home here in the western United States, has left me feeling small and uncertain about the future. Oftentimes, when I am feeling small and uncertain about my place in the world, I go outside and look up at the night sky. It has a way of placing everything into perspective and grounding me. The sky has always offered me comfort as I am reminded of earth’s position in this beautiful, enormous universe. I say this not to wash away the relevance of the events currently taking place on our planet or the suffering people are experiencing, but to remind myself that we are occupying but a tiny fraction of time and space among the stars. Many years ago, I was gifted the wonderful Douglas Coupland book, ‘Life After God’ in which the following passage resonated with my much younger self. Recently, I was reminded of these words and found an even deeper connection to them.” – Jeannie Lynn Paske

“When you are young, you always expect that the world is going to end. And then you get older and the world still chugs along and you are forced to re-evaluate your stance on the apocalypse as well as your own relationship to time and death. You realize that the world will indeed continue, with or without you, and the pictures you see inside your head. So you try to understand the pictures instead.” – Douglas Coupland

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Jeannie Lynn Paske is a self-taught artist from Portland, Oregon who creates introspective work under the name Obsolete World. Using a mix of watercolor, charcoal, pastel, graphite, varnish and ink, she designs richly textured illustrations of peculiar creatures in thought-provoking settings. The mysteries of life, loss and loneliness are recurring themes, and her compositions often focus on the strange and unexplained. Many of her pieces reference philosophy with a nod to both the melancholy and humorous. Her soft sparse environments suggest a warm, dreamlike state, and the emotional imagery paired with her poetic titles help to convey a sense of gentle curiosity in her work.
