"I seek compelling gestures to fit abstract ideas. The design of the animal ambiguously demonstrates emotion through form and gesture, provoking an intriguing interaction between it and the viewer.

My visual ideas start in the studio and are further explored with live animals, most recently from the zoo. I discover the physical and psychological characteristics of the individual that speak to the initial ideas, whether they are actually inherent in the individual or my projection of who they are. They help to define my final works." – ADAM MATANO
