Bizarre and beautiful, Laurie Hogin’s allegorical paintings raise issues of consumerism, sexism, and environmental degradation. Rendered in the hyper-realistic style reminiscent of 17th-century Dutch masters, neon-colored animals populate overgrown, idealistic landscapes or pose as the subject of a portrait. Hogin’s paintings are filled with images of snarling bunnies, maternal monkeys and other creatures affected by the industrial, pharmacological, political, and economical forces.
