“I live in Los Angeles, but I grew up in a small town in upstate New York, surrounded by farmland. I was always fascinated by the cows. They never seemed to be in a hurry. There is a long history of cows in art, from John Constable to Andy Warhol (who made cow wallpaper!), so I feel like I’m continuing a tradition.

The title of this collection was provided, unintentionally, by filmmaker David Lynch. As part of his publicity campaign for Inland Empire, Lynch sat on a street corner in Hollywood with a cow and a poster of Laura Dern. I went to a screening of the film, and at the Q&A session afterward the moderator asked “so what’s the deal with the cow?” His answer was simply “people like cows.” I thought this was hilarious, but also true, so I borrowed it as the title for a whole series of paintings, and this wallpaper.”

Ideation to installation.
