The art of Brandon Willett
Brandon Willett's Artist's Statement:
"I'm fascinated with humanity's relationship to the animal kingdom. The raw ferocity predator's display - unapologetic, insatiable yet completely natural. It’s a force that humbles and simultaneously disturbs us once that same animalistic insatiability is seen within humanity.
Rooted in our deep need to humanize the non-human and dissolve grand differences between the two kingdoms, we misinterpret predator's actions as rage and malice. There is only singular function within their Kingdom, however humanity possesses the choice of nobility or tyranny. "
