Animal Art

Daniel Higgs, Tara Jane O'Neil and Savage Pencil feature in an exhibition on animal art which opens this week

Daniel Higgs, Tara Jane O’Neil and The Wire’s Savage Pencil are among the artists included in a new group exhibition at London’s 96 Gillespie gallery titled Mythical, Domestic, Working and Loved: Animals In Contemporary Art. The exhibition features works in which animals are used to illustrate spiritual, political or social aspects of human life and encompasses printmaking, photography, painting drawing & sculpture. Comic and mystical, figurative and occult: the styles represented are as diverse as our relationships with the creatures themselves. London 96 Gillespie, 25 January – 17 February. More info here
