“Humans rely on nature to survive but within our physical existence we have started to rely on our fabricated society, and in our gradual incline of artificiality we have forgotten nature. Even though we are a part of nature we try to control it, synthesize it, and in turn we are starving our beings. Most of us hold nature as an ideal place we can visit, or come and go as we please but the mind, the body, and nature are all part of the singularity that is the universe. These paintings depict our present attempt to leave nature and the beginning of something else entirely.” –Joe Hengst, San Francisco
