Artist Kaki Dimock explores how the animal and human world co-exist in other-worldy habitats. She reveals the complexity beneath the surface of an ocean, land, animal, or house by drawing fragile boundaries between evident and obscured spaces and places. Illustrating moments of surprise alongside seemingly compulsive repetition, Dimock’s work exposes the hidden, vast interiors of oceans, elephants, countrysides, and snakes. Animals are often cast in the starring role in Dimock’s plays in order to make up for lost time they’ve been spending hidden in the forest, under water, behind fences, and beneath porches. Her mostly friendly beasts and creatures investigate struggles like isolation, interdependence, control and conflict through curious scenarios. Her colorful approach to complex human needs examines serious, even sometime dangerous, experiences in startling ways.
