Catalogue Note

"I was thinking about these images as symbols, as a vocabulary of things. In one a dog's being worshiped by these people. In another one the dog is being zapped by a flying saucer. Suddenly it made sense to draw on the street, because I had something to say. I made this person crawling on all fours, which evolved into the 'baby.' And there was an animal being, which now has evolved into the dog. They really were representational of human and animal. In different combinations they were the difference between human power and the power of animal instinct."
