Artist's statement

Zane has lived on the land his entire life – he knows no other way. He now works the yards and the labyrinth of passage ways like a well-trodden path that he was destined for. The cattle move through the stockyards with great ease, it shouldn't be this easy but Zane just makes it happen. There is no fuss and, unlike other handlers, there is no yelling. Zane and the cattle move with an unspoken knowledge of what is supposed to be.
