Sample of Artist Statement for "Meaning in Art":
see the kinship between primates and
humans in the connected child and gorilla. The merging of the two speaks of the
significant overlapping of not just our DNA, but of what we hold dear, what we
fear and how we nurture and protect each other, when we are each free. This photograph
was taken at the Seattle Zoo where a human toddler and a gorilla were both
leaning their back against the glass that separated them. I think the
reflections add a mysterious dynamic to the image. This photograph is not "Photoshopped" and is a limited
edition of ten archival prints.
