The Mountain Lion, an artificial specimen in a manufactured landscape reacts to the boundaries of the camera lens. Caught in the act, frozen in a moment’s notice, it is a symbol of our wild side. With a loud roar it roams the land.
The term Coyote derives from the Aztec word cóyotl, meaning trickster. This hound’s intention is to cross the road in front of him. Hoping to cross to the other side, this coyote is in search of the next frame. Trapped inside of a stump, its presence lingers.
While the canine is a found object, the feline is a carefully staged presence; illusive yet fleeting.
Both are California native residents.
