"I think one of the reasons I began to use animals as a metaphor for the human condition came from the fact that we like to bestow these creatures with the same kinds of emotions as our own, without ever really knowing what is going on... this 'one step removed' from our reality is of interest to me."

James Castle, quoted by Paul Greenhalgh, from The Sculpture of James Castle
