Human Nature

For this selection, i wanted to show human-kind's twisted relationship to nature through a series of works by various artists whose pieces depicted themes of humans and animals interacting or morphing together. Many of which are twisted and give off a somewhat creepy or depressing emotion. I chose to have a balance of lighter low contrast pieces with no color and high contrast colorful pieces, thinking that this combination would be eye catching and also more eerie for the viewer. I also included sculptural pieces that matched this theme to add more interest to a exhibit's floor space and add depth to the overall mood. Each piece was picked for these traits among others to fit into, but also enhance the potential of the theme and the other pieces. The human animal connection shows us not just about our relationship with nature, but also more about our own human nature.
