Animal instincts

Birgit Henstorf is a North Coast artist who grew up in rural Germany. Her art reflects her concern for the welfare of animals and her interest in the interaction between humans and animals.

“My images frequently involve creatures that have hybridised and morphed into sometimes funny, incongruous and theatrical propositions. As well as standing for themselves, animals are great for retelling the human condition. They disarm us, they touch the inner child and they are ripe for devices such as irony and humour,” she said.

An exhibition of Birgit’s work, called Plotting Against the Wolves opens at The Centre, 3 Centennial Circuit, Byron Bay on Friday, May 21, from 6pm.
