“Growing up in Colorado, nature is a huge part of my inner life; I cast people as animals, or perhaps use animals as stand-ins. This is a way for me to avoid the issue of race politics. My work has much to do with the idea of vs.— Man vs. animal, machine vs. nature, realism vs. abstraction, old vs. new, finished vs. unfinished, and winning vs. losing. I feel that this apparent confusion is what makes the world interesting. I’m just trying to figure out the surroundings and make sense of things.”
