LESLIE HAINES: ANIMAL ABECEDARY
Customs House Museum / 200 S. 2nd St. August 1, 2018 - September 2, 2018
A series of digital collages by Leslie Haines, who says of the work: "This animal alphabet series began while I was flipping through my well-worn book of Victorian engravings. Coming across an image of a stout walrus with a human face, I was stopped dead in my tracks. The image was so startlingly weird and wonderful, I knew I had to work with it. My images explore unusual imagery juxtapositions by transforming something ordinary, like an alphabet book, and turning it into a fanciful flight of unexpected and amusing pairings."
