The paintings in Horned and Antlered Animals feature the spiraling horns of goats, the calligraphic horns of bison, the lyre-shaped horns of antelope, and the regal crowns of stags—paired, branched or forked. The artist positions the animals on the edge of abstraction, where they may be read as animal, abstraction, landscape or still life, while she explores the relationship between ancient art and the contemporary imagination.
