Artist Statement -

COWBOYS AND INDIANS introduces us to two insular, male-dominated communities.

The first is a group of “jackaroos” (the term for young cowboys in Australia), in a remote area of northern Queensland that has neither FM radio nor cell phone reception or any sizable village within a vicinity of over 100 miles.

The other is a group of wrestling students in their sacred training grounds -- part clay/dirt arena, part temple to the Hindu-god Hanuman -- in a congested city in northern India.
The two communities are based on nearly opposite motivations: the “jackaroos” being
in it for the money, out of necessity; the wrestlers choosing an athletic pastime tied
into their religious beliefs. Where they mirror one another is in that these young men
immerse themselves in an environment where physicality becomes a centerpiece
of their togetherness and interaction, a physicality that is inherently and in a classic
sense masculine.
