Art by Sara MasonSara Kay Maston‘s MFA thesis exhibition An Animal Among Animals  is series of paintings that focus on rendering animal experiences that are oftentimes disregarded or invisible to our human affordances.  A large-scale installation will facilitate a space that situates the viewer in relation to nonhuman animals inhabiting parallel environments. Paintings focused on rendering the physicality and vantage points of nonhuman animals, along with non-pictorial elements, are used to disengage anthropomorphic assumptions and situate human animality in a symbiogenetic relationship with other animals. An Animal Among Animals employs storytelling and metaphors through painting, drawing on personal narratives or dreams as a medium to engage the multiplicity of worlds and reveal meaning without imparting propositional claims.
