FIONA KENNEDY ALTOFT – Jocular
Hosted By 19 Karen
June 6th - July 4th, 2009
Dogs and people are similar in many ways. Both are instinctive, affectionate, wild, disobedient, compliant and at times, blindly loyal. My new paintings explore aspects of human behaviour that compare to animals, in particular that of my children.
This series encourages us to act on instinct and return to our enchanted world. We can escape ceaseless domestic demands and rebel against the expectations of responsibility by reclaiming our childhood. Who wants to become lost in their roles of mother and provider and lose their identity in the ceaseless demands of domesticity?
