[VISITING ARTIST] Homo Homini Lupus (2018, mixed media)

Visiting artist Dorothy Locke joins Pipsinella and Libby Williams in stylistic and thematic dialogue here around ideas of nature, wildness, predation and the food chain. The tiger stands in for Homo sapiens as apex predator in this piece, which mixes mundane references to mealtimes and the body beautiful with darker intimations of the raw violence of survival in the (our) carnivore’s world.
