Artist Statement

This installation, throughout Pugsley Park in the center of Peekskill, NY, was part of Peekskill Project 2004 sponsored by the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA, now HV MOCA). For this installation, a commentary on the war in Iraq, every tree in the park was spray-painted with a non-toxic, water-based, red tempera paint from the ground to 5 ft. up.
