Meat Matters: Carry 1

40" x 30", oil on canvas, 2007

Sometimes my paintings are made up of photos from different shoots –deliberately taken separately for whatever reason– to be composited later, as in this series. I rode my bike down to the financial centre in Toronto one summer to shoot the "background plates" of the tall office towers. I then shot my models in my studio to match, miming the cow parts by holding pillows. The blood was improvised based on various research images.

Part of my Meat Matters series.
