Nature

A while back I was asked to do some art work for a film that was coming out. It was a really beautiful coming of age story of two brothers living in a poor, rural place who's community was shocked by the sudden and mysterious death of a peer. It was so much about nature.-- human nature, the nature of certain familial relationships, and nature in the physical world. 

When I made this work I thought a lot about my own nature, the relationships I had with my siblings and our mom in our youth and the time I spent in the James River park system as a kid.

Anyways, it didn't work out with the filmmakers. They kinda fucked me over actually. I guess I've been sorta thinking about these paintings lately.
