Artist's Description

Snails have always drawn my attention either as an irritant, a curiosity, or a slow moving, funny-looking, walk sliming transient. Moving from place to place can’t be much of a burden if you’re never far from home, can it? Even if the house is a one-bedroom, no bath fixer-upper. But you can also look at snails as the first RV’ers, traveling all over the place with all the conveniences of home but stopping every night to hook up somewhere new for dinner.

What’s the buzz with the eyes? Are they REALLY helping the critter see “over” the terrain? Or do they just look upwards to find food overhead? I know that they don’t seem to watch with their big foot steps cuz they will walk right into a line of salt as if it wasn’t even there and THAT’S not too bright. Maybe they need eyes on the top and bottom of those stalks to avoid “going green” without reducing pollutants. What does it feel like if you’re a snail and you walk on salt? Does it feel like acid and fire or like you’ve turning into a Mr. Bubble and someone is blowing your parts into horrid, green circles? Either way, it’s got to be a mind-altering experience. Or do snails not have minds? After all, they don’t exactly exhibit a lot of breath in their chosen behaviour patterns. Crawl, eat, crawl, sleep. Crawl, eat, make more snails, crawl, sleep. Repeat until you walk over line of salt.

But the most strange thing of all is how much snails love a brewski. Obviously, born alcoholics, they can’t resist an empty cat food can filled with even the crappiest beer. And they don’t just get drunk; they drink until they fall in and drown or pass out and drown or just drown. They even try to bogard each other’s beer and 20 of them can drown in the same 1 inch of flat Coors.
