California mountain climber

Body of work: California Fever-Dreaming

This powder-coated and oil-painted sculpture of a mountain goat was thrown into a large bonfire during the summer of 2018 when it seemed like the entire state of California was on fire.

California Fever-Dreaming is a body of work that looks askance at American Western mythology, Manifest Destiny, Western Machismo and way of life from the days of European conquest to now.
