A dog portrait, taking cues from traditional portraiture, embellished by a detailed frame. The combination bestows the viewer with a greater insight into the rich history and character of the subject. Touching on anthropomorphism, it speaks to the unique personalities and strong human-like characteristics we recognise from the dogs in our own lives. The work celebrates how meaningful these relationships can be to us.
