About the EXHIBITION
This series of work by Australian artist Mike Chavez explores the nature of human relationships, courtship rituals, gender politics and sexual dynamics by juxta-posing our conversational intimacies and pillow talk with anthropomorphic animal couplings. According to Chavez “…I just like to paint critters and speech bubbles” which is apt given his background is in animation.
