Death on a Pale Green Horse , Oil and matte-medium transfer on Stonehenge, 50" x 61", 2018   Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch's iconic  Garden of Earthly Delights , the paintings in "Happy Animal" combine the detail-rich symbolism of Early Netherlandish painting with the bright colors found in Pop Art. Lisa Frank’s popular illustrations of animals are another important influence on these paintings, which flirt with nostalgia for ‘90s era optimism and kitsch. Photo transfers and digital collages accompany the paintings, incorporating found photographs that nod towards the influence that memes, news footage, and nature programs like  Planet Earth  have on our conception of the natural world. Together the paintings and photographs stand at the juncture of the old and the new, the analog and the digital. In this juxtaposition of media, the exhibition oscillates between celebrating biodiversity and critiquing the ongoing destruction of the natural world.
