“Suzanne Unrein dreamed of succumbing to wild animals. She accepted her fate in the jaws of an alligator and a lion.
Her paintings stage trans-species drama in a fever-dream jungle, contrasting patches of deep shadow with random sunlight. She renders people and creatures with bold, gestural lines that reveal or elide details. Fragments of branches, faces, arms, legs, wings, and paws recombine in a riot of abstract pattern. The paintings evoke the danger and the rarity of heightened awareness of wild animals, yet preserve their perennial separateness and innocence.
The spectacle of foxes, crocodiles, wolves, dogs, swans, and tigers witnessing and/or having sex with humans is muted by the remove of theater, and recalls tableaux that pose living actors like statues. Puzzled-together beasts stretch, fight, rest and sometimes comically imitate people, making them represent the swooning, preoccupied figures in the process of shedding their inhibitions.”

Saw Tooth Hangers: centered and placed one to two inches from the top edge of the work/frame
D-rings/wire:placed within the top quarter of the work. If hanging hardware is placed lower, the work will have a tendency to hang forward, be top heavy & will not be displayed.
Maximum weight of hanging work is 20 lbs. Sculpture must include its own pedestal or display base unless it is meant to sit directly on the floor.
