ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

The artists at BEING studio have been working closely with local artist Christopher Griffin to create paintings based on animals. For several months Christopher has been coming into the studio to introduce a technique where asphalt is applied directly to the canvas to create animal forms. The resulting collection of creatures is powerful, polite, stubborn, lonely, affectionate, hairy, young, sun-loving and strong. They represent 15 different artists’ perspectives on our relationship with animals and the natural world.

 

Please note that the Manx is not an accessible space.
