This collection of paintings is loosely based on characters from the Winnie the Pooh stories and the untamable nature of children and animals. Each of the characters in A.A. Milne’s Pooh series is beset with their own set of ticks and neuroses that make them endearing as characters. (Rabbit with his OCD or Eeyore’s chronic depression, ect.) Children and their wild imagination and their yet untamed nature endear us in a similar way. The paintings in this show play with these themes.
