From Nature

Jeff Nibert


     Although man came from nature, he is disconnected from the wild.  These two pictures from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Wendover, Utah, attempt to show the resonance of the owl-boy.  They strive to show how man is always trying to find his place.  In the case of the owl-boy, he is not wild enough to reside in nature, yet too wild for the city.  The first picture shows the owl-boy in a natural setting where man is interacting with nature by trying to live within it.  The second scene shows the owl-boy in an urban setting where nature is coping with civilization.
