“Animal imagery is the enduring subject of my art, and it is often intertwined with social and political commentary, eroticism, and humor. While I am interested in form and the vitality of expression, decoration, for its own sake, has never interested me. I look to the masterworks of the past for inspiration, particularly the Moche of Peru, Han Chinese, African Art, early Mediterranean ceramics, and lately, the powerful artistry of the Native Americans of the Southwest. ” – Joe Bova
