Ministers of the Kingdom: Brian R. Williams (April 26, 2018 - July 22, 2018)

 

The subjects of Brian's drawings are ambassadors sent here from the animal kingdom to illustrate the ways in which animals and people share a common existence. Brian draws inspiration from nature, history, animals, ghost stories, folklore, and old-fashioned photography. He likens his drawings to Aesop's Fables, where animal characters exist in a man-made environment - either posing as a person or replacing man-made technology - to illustrate the ways that people and animals are similar but also to create unusual, humorous, and surreal drawings. Some of the things you’ll find in his work are animals dressed in human clothing to represent a human trait such as arrogance or wisdom, and historic Americans paired with what the artist believes would be their pet dinosaur of choice. Brian says that “Today it feels like we are further isolated from nature than ever before, so it might be good from time to time to remember who we are and where we came from.”
