Wilding – Silver State (Samson) 36 x 36″
Mixed media, spray paint and silver leaf on cradled wood panel, from a photograph by Troy Wright. Samson is a beautiful and strong stallion in the Carson Valley herd of wild horses, roaming the hills of Nevada.
The Wilding series is inspired by the intersection of human and wild… we desire to touch something that is unaltered and deeply rooted, and by doing so we change it and it changes us. We crave wilderness and an experience of something far from pavement. These pieces have been created using decidedly urban materials… spray paint, graffiti materials and techniques, sometimes building materials, reclaimed materials… depicting images of the wild world with which we seek to connect.
