Nighttime Playground (with Skunks) is my piece for ArtPrize 2012. It has been displayed in galleries in Michigan during the past year, and has received much positive feedback. It is my submission to ArtPrize because it has widespread appeal. For the general public, it is representational and recognizable. It will evoke feelings of playfulness and nostalgia. For seasoned art viewers, there is a deeper level to contemplate. A theme prevalent in this piece, as well as much of my body of work, is the animal world versus the man-made; the intersection of those two worlds, how they exist simultaneously, and how they affect one another.
