Homebones is an ongoing series of drawings of horses, focusing on the aspects of nourishment, and the dual identities of one who is self-sustaining. I use the horse to symbolize the conjoined roles of provider and receiver, parallel to the relationship between humans and horses. Throughout our history together, humans have relied upon the horse for muscle, material, milk and meat, and in return given the horse care, shelter, nourishment and eminence. For an experimental and experiential exhibition, the drawings were paired with specific offerings of food (honeyed milk, bread, bacon, and whiskey).
