Since prehistory, humans have lived in close contact with wild animals. It's no wonder that animals have provided the inspiration behind most of our mythology, where animals serve as stand-ins for humans or human characteristics. Laura Ball is one such artist, who deconstructs animals into dynamic, almost mythical, designs. First featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 31, Ball's watercolor paintings often portray a combination of endangered species, on the verge of becoming myths themselves. For her current exhibition, "Keep", at David B. Smith Gallery in Colorado, she expresses her desire to create a safe place for these creatures.
