Statement from Zoe Tweedale’s 2017 exhibition “Animalia”

Continuing an examination of ‘beasts’ and ‘beastliness’ in her distinctively bold pared back style, Zoe Tweedale’s Animalia explores in greater depth her interest in portraying her subjects as characters on a stage

The subjects in Anamalia are defined by their surroundings, shadows, stages and perches, describing a featureless nowhereland of colours and simple shapes contrasted with detailed, diverse and peculiar creatures. Her beastly characters inhabit these settings, interacting with them to give each image its particular mood and moment
