Throughout history and across civilisations, animals have been represented in art for their beauty, to tell stories, or to worship the powers they were believed to hold. The bond and fascination between humans and animals is both timeless and universal.
Artists often take solace and inspiration from the animals around them. With so many Australian artists living in rural settings, or simply pet owners, animals are frequent features in many artists’ studios, offering unconditional companionship as well as artistic inspiration.
