Biographical Info

Janell O’Rourke works through a visual language of drawing, painting, object making, contemporary silhouettes, photography and stop motion vignettes. Her studio practice is deeply shaped through drawing, often using intentionally low tech materials and techniques while exploring ways to make art that questions and de-centers human constructs and unwarranted prejudices towards other animals and our relationships with them. How does one unlearn normalized bigoty, the divisions that ceaselessly divide us from them? Can art work open up a critical space in which to think with animal beings and nature as subjects to a life; a new ethic of art that is inclusive and non-exploitative? Perhaps art will move forward into the vulnerable future to promote unity and a promise for shared experiences.
