I’m interested in the view of the wild as portrayed by taxidermy and folk art of New England. Such benevolence feels in conflict with our modern relationship with the environment.
My work continues in these traditions, materials and even the fantasy in which nature is concerned for our welfare, shares our goals, thinks like we do, exists for our benefit.
Every day the natural world keeps telling us that we’re not the only game in town. My work is an attempt to balance this awareness with the desire to pretend otherwise.
