Kristen, Thanks for the comments. It is always interesting and informative to have someone with your insight into  the relationship between form and metaphor and meaning do this kind of analysis. I think you are dead on in the connections you make between works. We are often too close and too busy working on the pieces to see that kind of relationship. This is very helpful. Thanks again.

Curator’s Comments:  


It’s nice to see your new digital prints on the site.  John Deere in the Barn at first seemed like a departure from your more surreal genre of spatial constructions, but it still has an interesting tension between interior space and defined enclosure.  The coloration of the tractor itself has an interesting luminous quality, making it appear more animated and brightly exotic than I would expect from such a subject.  The dramatic symmetry of the form and scale of the object seemed oversized for the structure; making me contemplate the restraint of power and locomotion.  In some ways, both formally and conceptually, it shares much with the pieces of the birds of prey. (Defender or Depredator?)  The rustic iron surfaces also mirror some of the patinas in other works. Would That Earth Could Forfend occurs to me as an equally apt title for the John Deere piece.
