News Section Icon Published 11/10/2010

Robert Davies, outstanding artist and Compassion in World Farming supporter invites you to the Hilary Crisp Gallery, 3 Newman Passage London, W1T to see his remarkable exhibition 'Animals'.

Weds 13th October until Sat 20th November, Gallery open Wed-Sat 12 pm - 6pm


Roberts Davies is a passionate supporter of Compassion, and we are delighted to be part of his London Exhibition that renders very large drawings of two different types of animals including those involved in food production.

Robert on the 'Animals' Exhibition:

"The first drawings are of racehorses, feted animals held in high esteem by their public, contemporary champions of their sport. They are often described in human terms, given characteristics like desire, spirit, intelligence and beauty, and we recognise these traits.

"The second group of drawings are the animals of food production that are often invisible to most of the population, those of us who eat them or benefit from the by-products of their being farmed. They are afforded few qualities, least of all any intelligence, which seems hypocritical and must change."


The Compassionate Link:

Robert has been a supporter of Compassion for many years and the intention with this work is to draw a comparison between the two positions, to reinterpret our relationship to these animals through representation and to show the majesty intrinsic to all animal species.

Compassion in World Farming's patron Joanna Lumley has written the introduction to Robert's exhibition catalogue for his next show at Wolverhampton Art Gallery in March 2011.
