Mega Press is pleased to announce the publication of Changes, a new edition collecting drawings by NYC based artist Zebadiah Keneally. In this series of images, Keneally explores the idea of time and it’s effect on the human condition. Keneally deploys a loose and freeform graphic mark-making style to investigate themes such as the self’s relationship to past and future, the relationship between self and spirit, and they ways in which time is spent over the course of a working week. Channeling masters of graphic shorthand such as Guston and Steinberg, Zebadiah Keneally’s drawings manage to convey a sense of effortlessness and spontaneity while capturing the timelessness of hieroglyphics. Repeating symbols such as clocks, blockheads and “cool sun dudes” accumulate to comfortably capture themes of work, love, and hope in a system that is able to appear universally recognizable while remaining slightly opaque and idiosyncratic.
Changes is 38 pages, risograph printed on light blue paper in an edition of 200
