CATTLE SERIES
Cattle are symbols of the pastoral American mythology we all carry in our collective subconscious, regardless of whether or not we have first hand experience with them.
In painting terms, the forms of cattle provide an opportunity to explore mass and shape, as well as color, texture and composition, their rectangular geometry creating contrast to the organic landscape serving as the base.
