Animals and Wildlife

Anthony’s work is about emotions which are evident in the eyes and faces of his human or animal subjects.  Peer at them and you are immersed in their world in which you form a bond.  Other times his work is simply about the majesty and beauty of his subjects.

We Too – Pastel – 29″ x 22″

We Too was created during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980’s.  The piece took 3 years to finish because of the integral relationship between the background and the figures.  The chimpanzees represent the fear that existed among so many during this period of time.  The background is a maze from which there is no exit.  This work explores our fear of the dangerous and unknown and how we support each other during these times.

Satan’s Leap – Pastel – 28″ x 19″

I am particularly interested in the power of evil, particularly as expressed by the Nazi regime in Germany.  In this drawing the cat represents Satan or the power of evil.  The stone is the world which he is possessing and the background is the number 666, the sign of the devil from which he gains his strength and power.
