Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles is bringing the happiness, hurt, and humor of furry little creatures to light with the exhibit Vivisect: The Final Playset, running now through December 11.
Curator Jensen Karp says the art exhibit showcases paintings and drawings of animals conveying a raw human condition or emotion.
The pieces on display include one of a bloodied bunny with knives sticking out of its coat wielding weapons in vengeance, a painting of a dead bird, a mouse, newt, and frog hugging goodbye, and a big black bear kidnapping a young girl.
By seeing animals in situations similar to humans, Karp says people may realize that furry ones play, laugh, hate, and cry just like us.
It may even help people learn to be nicer and more understanding of animals when they go out of control and attack people.
