More about the artwork

‘Frat guy’ stands for the archetypal privileged white young man, who has access to every opportunity—economically, socially, and educationally. Consciously or unconsciously aware of these privileges, he sometimes lets it rip with alcohol consumption and bad behavior. None of this will bring about any consequences for him, underscoring how deeply entrenched the supremacy of white males and their rituals are in society. Nicole turned the Frat Guys into a series, providing a satirical look at stereotypical images of masculinity. “Sleeping Frat Guy” (2013) dates from a period when Eisenman first began to explore the medium of sculpture in depth, creating numerous works in plaster.
