Original Watercolor, 32" x 38"
Toys produced in a technology culture are strange, hybrid representations of plant and animal forms rooted within the natural environment. If we lose the connection with our natural origin; we lose the ability to calculate the true worth of the object we have chosen to take it's place. The value becomes disconnected, remote, and meaningless. Turtle toys, animal farms, bear stuffed toys connect children to the natural world we all dependent on.
