Anthony Goicolea Envisions the Brutality of Nature

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Fascinated by the power of nature, Anthony Goicolea created a series of drawings and photographs titled “Pathetic Fallacy” in opposition to the so-called Disneyfication of flora and fauna. The term “pathetic fallacy” was coined by John Ruskin in 1856 and describes humans’ tendency to anthropomorphize animals and nature. Instead of storybook-like characters, Goicolea’s drawings present powerful trees and toothy canines that allude to nature as a force that does not act according to the will of humankind. Take a look at some of Anthony Goicolea’s works below, images courtesy of the artist.
