Collection of the artist

 

Buffalo Milk Yogurt (2010) is a cutout animation portrait of Corey Fogel, an artist and musician from Los Angeles. Corey and I met in 2008 when we were residents at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida. During a conversation at the residency, Corey suggested that he “star” in one of my animations.

All of my animations depict people’s longing for something beyond their everyday lives. In this work, Corey suffers a nervous breakdown in a gourmet supermarket while a nude woman practices yoga in a display of fall pumpkins. The narrative is loosely inspired by Corey’s experiences and features his original music.
