When I work on a piece like this I need to conjure up within myself the fury and fierceness of the bear. I must move between being the bear and being the one who confronts the bear. In so doing I seek to bring the viewer of my art beyond voyeurism to response and interaction, to feel not only the thrill and impact of an encounter with true wildness but to respect it. My thoughts have often gone to wildness as I work. I think I would prefer to die at the whims of a rogue bear on his turf than to succumb to one of the many wretched cancers of society, for then I will have truly lived.
