"Nurture of the Beast" is one from my series "Environmental Habits". The series puts animals in modernized environments with square shaped obstacles. The expressive, impressionistic depiction of the animals represent the vigor and tenacity of nature. The animals are juxtaposed with the crisp-edges and high texture of the shapes which represent the organized chaos of an over-industrialized world. Overall the series provokes questions about the relationship between these two forces.
