The work you see explores the violent tensions that exist within conflicting interests, whether they be ethical or economical.  The sculptures consist of two separate entities colliding and unnaturally co-existing.  The casts mostly consist of animals going through the rigor mortis stage, when all the muscles in the body are tense, relaxing hours later as decomposition sets in. During this period, the body exists as a temporary sculpture resisting its inevitable fate, much like the plaster casts of Pompeii victims. The Pieces are meant to illustrate a struggle of co-existing with one another. Finally, the piece looks like an actual collision between two forces while enticing the viewers sense of morbid curiosity, the artist took much inspiration from the violent deaths of road kill.
