On a roadtrip spring 2006, driving 5.000 km throughout the northwest of the US, visiting a series of National Parks.
Driving a small economy rental car, I often wondered why all locals seems to be needing a ridiculously oversized truck?
As if driving a gas slurping, big ass Ford F-something Super Duty isn’t macho enough already, this one even has balls (yeah! ánd a bell)!
Well, I lost count of the enless number of ‘roadkill‘: dead birds, deer, opossums, badgers, skunks, snakes and even turtles lying along the highways and byways. Apart from their own holy cows, many drivers don’t seem to give a damn about animals…
I hope one day the skunks will fight back, and I don’t mean for low gas prices!
Opening at Pegge Hopper Gallery, Honolulu, HI, and at Artist Image Resource, Pittsburgh, PA, the guys who made the original screenprints.
