John Sabraw "Unearthed Topographies" at McCormick Gallery

"There is a hidden network most people have no idea exists, yet each of us has a part in its formation. Underground coal mines.
In a recent series of art works I am unearthing these hidden topographies to examine their paradox. For they are at once wondrous feats of human ingenuity and engineering, yet also emblematic of our consumption and hubris.
These underground excoriations are fascinating in their design, and compelling in their geography. By drawing maps of these coal mines, I am seeking an understanding of humanity itself."
