Birds and Beasts

May 24th - June 30th, 2019

Opening reception, Friday May 24th, 5-9pm


The dichotomy of Birds and Beasts can be read as an allegory for two halves of human existence. While birds with their freedom to fly have been used as devices to symbolize our aspirations, imaginations, and spirituality, beasts are categorically earthly and represent aspects of our being that link us to our animal cousins. Namely, birds personify our desires while beasts highlight our physicality— hunger, vulnerability, and our earthly obligations.
