Claude Jones artist talk today at 3pm...

Join us for a free artist talk with Claude Jones, today at 3pm in the gallery.

Claude's work deals with the deceitful impressions propagated by those who wilfully exploit animals for entertainment and capital gain is at the heart of Monkey business, Claude Jones’s latest body of poignant and provocative works which expose man’s duplicitous treatment of animals.

By perversely transposing animals as both perpetrators and victims in her images she focuses on man’s double standards. The artist employs humour, soft colours and decorative elements that belie the sinister narrative content of the works in the same way that the sordid underbelly of ‘legitimate’ mistreatment and exploitation of animals for food and entertainment is repressed and sugar-coated.
