Liz Arnold
An interest in our animalistic instincts inspired 'Felicity'. In its depiction of a dog with silky black hair wearing a pink dress and strolling on two legs along the seashore, Liz Arnold shows a 'parallel world to the 'real' world – a fantasy place.' This strange creature perhaps represents a certain state of mind, as she explains: 'dreams, fantasies and fictions are part of our experience of the world. 'Felicity' celebrates being alive and animal.' Ann Jones
