A friend asked how I feel when I look at this. I said: I feel conflicted about it. It makes me smile & frown. The Winchester rifle was used to kill a lot of Native Americans. The steer horn chair is a cattle baron’s throne; symbol of a wildly corrupt industry that cost many lives, including those of young women who wore silly outfits. Coyote’s a trickster; a deity who falls between good and evil. Then I think, I’m quite attracted to antique rifles, cheeseburgers and curvy women in catsuits.
The point of making art like this is to come to terms with my own conflicting desires.
