About the exhibition
"I find inspiration in the space between simplicity and complexity, which NIAD artists often teeter. For cats & dogs, I’ve selected a group of 13 works that feel like investigations, confrontations, or observations having to do with popular imagery (i.e. animals (cats, dogs, birds), other people, furniture, etc.). The presented subjects become of equal interest to the audience, as the artists’ hyper-focuses become one with our own. Appearingly naïve forms become enthralling windows into the minds of these exceedingly talented artists with disabilities."
