“The Cow series” explore portraiture and the human condition of Anthropomorphism… Why is it that we can't help ourselves from projecting a human emotion on animals? And despite this projection we give little regard to the cow’s well being. Geare’s interest in cows has to do with these majestic animals being a primary source of food for Americans and many other cultures worldwide. We hide the slaughtering process from the general public and once the meat reaches market, the cute and cuddly face is gone. A series of ribs or a cut of the hind quarters remains wrapped in plastic, unrecognizable as a cow. Although he loves and respects the cow deeply, it does not hinder him from eating them. "My interests lie in naming and facing our food"… the viewer is left with an impression of the darkness of our condition.
