DD LaRue, Award-Winning Mixed Media Artist
As the human race’s relationship to the world becomes ever more complex and technological, I feel it becomes increasingly important to attune our emotional and spiritual connections to nature.
With this in mind, I use a variety of animals as subject matter to help bring their sense of eloquent grace and psychic vitality to our often nature-sterile environments. Because the relationship between dogs and humans is the oldest and most complex alliance between two species, they provide unique metaphors to the human condition. Exploring the human-dog connection through my anthropomorphic canines, I intend to provide an illuminating mirror for us, the “dominant species.”
