People always ask why I did this series. It is not like most of my work. Some of the origin might be from a "mid-life crisis" but there are other reasons. I've always been attracted to images that combine conflicting ideas. Here, the satyrs, creatures that represent our most basic and natural impulses, are often shown in tamer situations. It's the conflict between freedom and security.

Other reasons are: a lifelong fascination with mythology, the drawings of Picasso and Matisse, and a desire to explore more imaginary subjects.
