Requiem for an English Major
Ed Saavedra uses his own deconstructed version of a 240-yr-old "English Major" (Thomas Gainsborough's The Blue Boy) to create this site-specific installation in memory of a beloved English major who never reached his forties. Extracted and isolated from his 70 X 48-inch landscape, the Boy (whose identity has been obscured) is now only visible through the negative space created by his absence.
