Whether they run to you or from you, it’s impossible to escape the canines in our community. With over a third of Australian households owning a dog, Emily Shannon’s digitally created hand-drawn prints celebrate the pups of Boroondara, but with a difference.

These pooches have been juxtaposed with human apparel. Is it a dog in a human coat or a human in a dog coat? Who has dominion over whom? Is there something distinctly human expressed in the nurture of our ‘fur babies’? Come take a walk Off the Leash with these quirky, vibrant, humanised hounds.

Featuring: Emily Shannon

Off the Leash is on display from Tuesday 15 January - Sunday 10 February.
