“For the first time in the history of art, the animals look back at us in art imagery. Their gaze is direct, an immediate address, a one-to-one relationship. The animals are fully present in all their living wholeness, vulnerability, intensity, and even ferocity. Rather than merely there for our admiration or projected needs, they are their very own being. The artists in this exhibition are in the vanguard of a new movement, which by resonating with the inner life of animals, is opening up a vital dialogue with our fellow sentient being.” – S. Henry
