The animal kingdom maybe the last thing left out of man’s reach…I say “maybe” because attempts have been made to deface it and to enslave animals. Like Amerindians, I appreciate finding animal traits that could potentially translate into ways of being. The slyness of a fox, the eyesight of an eagle, the strength of an ox, the speed of a bobcat… Animals can also be found in my “Natives of America” paintings. The Indians, the Egyptians and other civilizations have turned them into gods… If wild animals fascinate me it is perhaps because they cannot be tamed…
