To the casual observer this is an exhibition of animal paintings but it is actually a collection of self-portraits. The work in this show exposes some aspect of the artist through the eyes of another creature, alien and yet somehow familiar. The human psyche is a fabric of interwoven personalities – some very intellectual and refined while others are primal – the loyal dog, the curious cat, the fashionable bird or the hungry predator. The artists in this show have sought out their distant evolutionary cousins and embraced them as family.
