TITLE: November Reliquary
DATE: 2011
MEDIUM: deer bones, plexiglass
DIMENSIONS/RUN TIME: Sizes from left to right- 12 1/8″ x 7″ x 4 3/8″, 6 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ x 3″, 6 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ x 3″, 6 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ x 3″, 10 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″, 13″ x 5 1/4″ x 4 3/8″
DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: By a series of hermetically sealed deer bones, I wanted to capture man’s arrogant land ethic. I chose the deer since it epitomizes a species that has run amuck from previous ‘managerial’ attempts, what comes to mind is the lyme’s epidemic, chronic wasting disease, frequent roadside bloodshed, bloated carcasses and now epizootic hemorrhagic disease; an imbalance that slaps us in the face while we happily shove hunting money in our pockets – wake the fuck up!
