 Bottle caps and wire

Artist's Statement:
It is important to me to recycle the abundance of raw material that is discarded, and to provide a way of looking at this material in other ways. "Live Stock" depicts my imagined future of the industrialized cow as it continues to be crudely altered and inhumanely treated to suit the agricultural industry’s demands. The head has been removed, multiple udders are added, the body is made of medicines, and the cow stands in a grassless field below a smoggy methane-filled sky. Creating an interplay between the charm and seduction of bottle cap color and design with the sinister characteristics of the cow, an irony is expressed.
