Sarah Fox: Surrogate

Thursday,  12.3.15   |   6–9 pm
"Surrogate is at it's core a meditation on loss and an attempt to communicate absence. The work references and takes meaning from the history animals have as stand-ins for people in morals, tales, and fables. The lines between animal, pet, and child are blurred with tenderness and care—beloved pets are clothed and treated as children in images both humorous and heartbreaking that reflect a version of reality thru collage or smoky graphite." Who doesn't love art inspired by clothed animals?
