36 x 30 acrylic on canvas
I am drawn to the wild and unknowable nature of animals. But in my paintings I use them as metaphors for our own lives. People and animals share the same struggles with the environment. Both of our living conditions involve fighting for our survival, avoiding prey, being predators, gathering or hunting for food, seeking shelter, and finding a mate for procreation. Elementary stuff for sure. Yet, do we share the same dreams and connections to the universe as our animal brethren? This is the real subject I want to explore with my images. Titles are: "Fall of the Hunter", "Sticks and Stones" and "Must be the Season of the Witch"
