ARENA 1 Gallery is pleased to present Critters.
Animals have dominated the imagination of humans for millenia – they in fact were our first gods. Since then we have enshrined them in art and artifact, the latest of which is to be found at Arena 1 Gallery. Each artist has a unique presentation in medium, method and form. “There is a psychological dimension to these artworks,” says curator Kristin Zethren. “Many animals interact with humans, and, though modern, most are symbolic – their function in art since the Stone Age.”
