Catalogue Note

“When we look back on some of the old masters there is usually a dog or two and various animals. They seem to have way more knowledge than the humans. In my work I like to stick them in beside the figures because I have four dogs and I am totally obsessed with them. I like to see animals in paintings because it seems very normal and they make me happy“ (Genieve Figgis in conversation with Catarina Vaz in: ‘Interview: Genieve Figgis’, Art Research Map (A.R.M), June 2017, online).
