DOG GESTALT An exhibition devoted to the sentient side of dogs and human-animal connections. We take for granted dogs’ ever-loyal, ever-loving tendencies, but in reality, they are complex creatures displaying a huge range of contrasting emotions and attitudes. The character and complexity of dogs cannot be conveyed in a single portrait, so I developed a series focused on the varied moods and activities of dogs. I hope my work celebrates them and can be used to move an audience to celebrate the life and unique charms of these animals and foster our need to support and protect them.
