Description

Dirty Animals is my exploration of animal and figure study that celebrates the empowered human figure and the remarkable, adaptable creatures of the animal kingdom.

Through experimentation with dry brush, multiple glazes and washes, this exhibit attempts to recreate the repainted walls, sometimes buffed over with ghostly backgrounds of street and graffiti art juxtaposed with animal and figure study.

Most pieces have been influenced by certain images from film/television including the visual imagery of Apocalypse Now, Akira, Wizards and National Geographic specials. Some of the animals chosen trigger specific childhood memories including biology experiments, trips to the Provincial Museum, and visits to the library reading comics with my brother.
