the poster child in Sept. 2003 Artweek article...

Bruce Conkle creates modern day fairytales, which like their forbearers also contain moral insights and discuss dilemnas that affect man today. In this case Conkle has created a complex tale of a hunter and the hunted (a bear and a half-wolf/half-lumberjack) where both have become trophies mounted on a witches cottage/tent. The motif of Gingerbread production is both a symbol for myth and a sticky sweet metaphor for chemical weapons production. Who wins in the end, myth or weapons?
