Us & Them

Woodcut print onto kitakata off-white paper, in all b&w, in a long horizontal orientation a foreshortened metro bus interior with 10 chacma baboons are dispersed about the seats, hand railings, and walkway of the bus, some showing all or partial appendages and some with hybrid human appendages and or clothing, at the center of the piece a shadow with the shape of a human silhouette is seated behind a partition on the bus. In the right hand corner of the bus interior a bus window lining elongates and transforms into a busy highway with passing vehicles and becomes part of a forested Seattle skyline and cityscape. Some of the buildings in the cityscape warp and fold toward different directions, with a row of buildings that warp and curve their way back into the bus interior in the opposite direction to that of the left bus window lining.
