Historical Context:
"This work is inspired by the Dutch proverb that it is named after and serves as a comment on the artist's Dutch work ethic. The woman is busy and accomplishing nothing. It (the work ethic) has served me very well, and it is certainly part of who I am, but there are times when it can be taken to the extreme as well." - Elona Van Gent. ;"This work is inspired by the Dutch proverb that it is named after and serves as a comment on the artist's Dutch work ethic.
