New Hampshire-based artist Gretchen Woodman's drawings and paintings relate to the enigma of the human-animal relationship. Sometimes humorous, but more often serious and thought-provoking, her work leans toward the side of the animal.
“I try to create an emotional connection with the animals,” says Woodman. “Some of my images are faces of animals, and they engage the viewer to look back at them, in the eye, in a sort of equality. I want the viewer to see the animal as an equal.”
