Horse Paintings

These paintings explore domesticity and freedom. Different two dimensional spaces work in opposition to one another, contrasting surface and illusion. The objects are trapped in space, they explore freedom and romance changing into everyday objects, sinks, tubs and shower parts, domesticated and transformed by the desires inherent in those objects, hygiene, security and comfort, creatures becoming the traps they built for themselves. These pieces represent a collision of the American ideal and the American dream. The image of wildness, strength and freedom sacrificed to comfort, security and cleanliness.
