Lungs 2010
Wood, Tar, Latex Paint  79"x33"

"Lungs" is a work from self observation, and a form of therapy.  A look or attempt to display what my lungs feel like from smoking.  It is striking how a trees roots, their life line are a mirror image of our lungs bronchial tubes.  Such an important factor of plant survival is a good, solid, healthy root structure, like the lungs of a person; it’s just so ironic that they look alike.
