CHECK MATE

I’ve always been interested in the juxtaposition of naturally occurring geometric shapes and those made by humans. In this context, mixing black and white with spotted breeds has a striking effect. Most patterns on living creatures serve a function, such as camouflage. On dalmatians, however, spots do not have a purpose, but they are equally as captivating. Simple shapes without colour have a certain intensity that induces a visceral human reaction. It’s essentially about light, and how it shapes our surroundings.

PACK OF DOGS

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound?
