DESCRIPTION:  From the Entropic Kingdom series - Art Statement:

The animal kingdom and mankind engage in an ongoing dance of co-existence which results in a predictable tension. This tension has escalated with man's increasing disregard for the fragility of the environment and abdication of his responsibility to care for the earth. One particular issue is global warming which has had a significant impact on all living things. Climate changes will minimally upset and perhaps ultimately destroy ecosystems. As a result, mammals already compete for survival in smaller and smaller spaces, while temperature changes alter migration patterns of fish, birds, and insects. I feel strongly that the cumulative impact of negative environmental changes cannot be ignored.

Having grown up on a Pennsylvania farm, I am inspired by Andrew Wyeth's rural landscapes, characterized by subtle, but powerful emotion. I hope to strike a similar emotional connection in the viewer by illustrating a disturbed world that has been thrown out of balance as a result of climate changes created by man's blind disregard in fulfilling immediate, self-serving needs. These photomontages are composed of animals, children and adults, all of which are potential victims and at risk.
