Initially stemming from an interest the physical and textural properties of animal bodies and then later the sentient experiences of those animals, I want to explore the human response to their world. Most of the time this is exploitive and mainly lacking in true understanding but nevertheless it is a genuine response. I also replace humans with animals to illustrate obvious and not so obvious themes in current and past events.
