Animal Tales will show at Tuggeranong Art Centre from the 1-20 December.
Mythology, Folk stories and Fairy tales are full of talking animals and beastly transformations. Some animals may be helpful and are full of advice, others are cunning and tricky. Enchanted transformations from human to animal form can be wondrous or a terrible punishment. I’m interested in the symbolic resonance that a particular animal gives to a story & what that choice reveals about the story teller and the audience.
I exhibited some previous work with one new piece, pictured below. Working through some of the imagery and themes in the Blodeuwedd myth, this show got me me to begin the making process.
