Exit the human. Human dominion over the earth seems shaky at best and definitely ill advised. It’s a good time to consider those other beings we the planet with, the furry, the feathered, the scaled, the shelled and even the fungal. We try to see our life choices through their eyes and find our lives inadequate. Animals don’t compare their fates to others and don’t require years of dharma study to learn to live in the moment. Is it any wonder we want to be surrounded by pictures of our nonhuman neighbors.
Featuring thirteen artists from Houston, Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, Dallas and Philadelphia each relates to the non-human in ways that range from the quirky to perverse but always memorable.
