Statement

My current paintings are inspired by unexpected confrontations that occur in the wild. The sources that I work from are natural history publications, wildlife documentaries, and found photos and videos from the internet. I present to the viewer either actual, embellished, metaphoric, or imaginary fights between different animal species. The paintings are intended to be humorous, instead of lecturing the viewer on the plight of the "natural world", I give them a tongue and cheek version of some struggle to survive. In my paintings the use of a featureless landscape puts the action in a pseudo-natural environment, distancing the work from that of traditional natural history and landscape paintings.
