The subject of animal depiction has been a favourite theme
for artists since the advent of painting. The earliest human urge to make
pictures resulted in charging animals recorded on the walls of caves.
The grand tradition of romantic painting focused animal love on rearing
horses and dogs of the hunt. Current popular animal images present tigers
on velvet, animals playing cards and airbrushed kittens on sweatsuits.
Can our adoration of wild animals be depicted in our images of them?
This project is a call to portray the love, curiosity or ambiguous feelings
inspired by animals both wild and those closer to home.
Tiger love and other animal stories, will feature the
work of Alison Judd, Amber Albrecht, Ethan Hayes-Chute, Katie Dutton,
Katie Lyle, Kiki Athanassiadis, Laura Marshall, Lauren Nurse, Meredith
Carruthers and Susannah Wesley. The works can be seen at galerie
