The illustrations of Andrea Offermann have a unique way of showing not only exaggeration and emotion, but an interesting quality of line that enhances the animals as well as the narrative in her pieces.

Ovidio Giberga creates a dynamic contrast in his sculptural works. In this series he combined the ferocity of native North American animals with the restraint and control of dental appliances, retainers and other devices added to their teeth and open mouths.

This photograph is from a series by Gregory Colbert called Ashes and Snow. There is an intimate relationship between the animals and the people interacting with them, and the environment around them is somewhat mystical.

About Ariel Bowman

I grew up in Dallas, Texas where I learned to love nature, animals, and art. I graduated with a BFA in ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2011. I am currently working towards my MFA in ceramics at the University of Florida. This blog serves as a way for my friends and family, as well as anyone interested in my work, to view not only the finished pieces, but some of the process as well. You can subscribe to this blog to keep up to date on what I am currently working on in the studio, research, new sources, and exhibitions.
