Lion Country Safari!!
Posted by Colin Darke
This piece was inspired by your underlying piece, my trip to lion country safari in Florida, and by an installation piece I saw in high school. Your piece captured a very child-like simplicity, which was the feeling that I had traveling through lion country safari. Melanie and I both had the child-like wonderment in exploring the interactive zoo--it was awesome. The zoo also reminded me of an installation piece Ben Butler did when I was in high school. He had gone on a safari the summer before, and he did a beautiful installation piece in the main gallery at South based on his trip. I wish I had pictures. He had beautiful paintings of all of the various animals on miscellaneous objects like blinds and an abandoned car.
Any way, let me know what you think. I think I like this one the best out of our collaborations.
