Studio Art and History Major

Embraced



In the fall of 2019 I started painting animals from Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary in Norton, MA. There are over 200 animals residing at Winslow Farm, each having their own unique story of how they came to the farm. Spread across just a few acres horses, cats, rabbits, goats, alpacas and many more roam free and live in harmony together. From this experience and through painting, I wanted to explore animal agency. This idea of animals being capable and being present with us and not just for us. By showing the embrace humans have over animals brings into question human authority over some of the most vulnerable creatures. Through my art, I hope to establish a sense of dignity for these animals and help others consider the relationship between the animal and human.
