Artist Beth Cavener explores the extremes of human emotion and psychology through the articulated forms of animals. The twisting shapes of oversized predatory cats, foxes, goats, and other animals are meant to depict the internal and external human struggles of fear, anger, love.

“On the surface, these figures are simply feral and domestic individuals suspended in a moment of tension, but beneath the surface, they embody the consequences of human fear, apathy, aggression, and misunderstanding.”
