About the Book
After I made a series of thwarted plans and things seemed like they couldn’t get any worse, the COVID-19 pandemic began. The pressure to achieve collided with the urgency of life in survival mode. As the weeks turned into months, and the months into over a year, and my concept of time became distorted beyond recognition, I found myself living in a world that desperately wanted to go back to normal when normal had been so disappointing for me. Though I had intended for this to be an art book, The Unforeseeable Future contains more essays than artwork, spanning a time when everything I knew was upended by unforeseeable calamities and preventable tragedies.
I am a Chicago based artist working in a variety of media. I have three primary bodies of work: The Doll Project, Post-Consumerism, and Recessionism. I studied art as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and interior design at Harrington College of Design and hold a Masters Degree in Painting from Governors State University. My art has been exhibited in several Chicago area venues, including a solo exhibition at Three Peas Art Lounge and the Second Floor Gallery of the Fine Arts Building. When I am not painting, I work as a freelance interior designer and receptionist. To see more of my work and purchase it online, please visit www.TiffanyGholar.com
