Primal

Artist Laurie Hogin paints intensely coloured animals. Animals that represent our primitive minds and aspects of our emotional selves. They are vibrant, funny, and weird.

I love the contrasting strong colours she uses, especially how they work in this one. With this technique she’s creating just enough stimulation and confusion to activate the primitive/emotional mind directly. At least that’s how I’m feeling it.
