Like many previous text works by Kenny Hunter, “Then the Animals said God” opens up a question rather than proclaims a position, simultaneously capable of suggesting both a creationist viewpoint and that of a Darwinian Scholar. The print takes its inspiration from a pivotal point in Human History, reminding us both of our animal roots and our desire for trancendence. The explosion in the background elaborates this dichotomy and can be read as either the ‘big bang’ or a burst of celestial light. Printed with Gold dust it can also evoke particle based matter as well as the traditions of religious art.
We are still finding bits of gold dusting in the screenprint studio!
