Conceptual Wall Installation, Oil on stretched canvas. This is one of 24 solutions in a series dealing with diversity, likeness, unlikeness and the comfortable or uncomfortable pairings. They are not just studies in color or form but, the intention is to render a sociological statement as well. Although I have displayed them in a specific way, the works have no specific formulas for installation. They may be presented in an infinite number of configurations, without compromising their integrity or intended correctness. More uncomfortable pairings would possibly further highlight some of the questions posed by the work. At once separate and together, these Vertebrate Companions possess infinite possibilities.
