Urban/ Nature

The meeting or juxtaposition of various contrasting forces such as industry or technology/nature sets up an interesting dynamic, and the visual portrayal of this was of real interest to me. Sometimes I used a recurring image of a Cow or Zebra (symbolizing Nature) as a device in order to explore Nature’s relationship to various man-made constructions and situations. In some paintings I deliberately mythologized the natural image to heighten the contrast. As a consequence, some of the works have a surreal quality to them.
