Title: The Bull-terrier
Chamotte, engobe, 47x34x23 cm, 2006.

The author’s idea was not to show bloody noses, injured paws or wounds, as the order of the day would dictate.
The viewer’s interest is driven not by the superficial, farfetched game of the modern art, but by the internal shapes of animalism. Well, classics can be elaborately «scandalous», too.


Brutality… Bestiarity… Bull-terrier… The story of the breed keeps haunting the artist. This time she is interested in the bull-terrier fighting origin, dating back to the 19th century, when people in England arranged fights of gladiator dogs, and needed a special stocky dog, ready to dart, with a special temperament, not fearing cruelty.
