THE TRUE COSTS OF EATING MEAT, DAIRY AND EGGS

For a couple of years I have been working on a series of prints where I did linocuts of farm animlas and printed them on photographs of the places where they spend their meagre lives in industrialized agricultural settings. I have chosen five animal species to represent all the animals humans exploit for food — cow, hen, sheep, goat and pig.

My intent is that  viewers see food animals as individual beings. I want them to look into the eye of the animal who is saying I am not meat but an individual being with feelings, who wants a life and to live the way nature intended.  To add a three dimensional effect I also created five sculptures.

I presented these works at a booth at the Nepean Fine Arts League Fall sale in 2017.
