The artists in this show share a common artistic bond. The majority picture the animal world regularly as an integral element of their work. While the myriad of subtexts and undertones don’t offer an over-arching link, much of the work encapsulates ideas of connectivity with animals, bringing up notions of exploitation, fear, humility and the sometimes naïve dream of confusing affinity with meaningful rapport.
