Influences: Sue Coe

English printmaker/ illustrator Sue Coe was raised near a slaughterhouse. Her work represents man’s treatment of animals as an ongoing holocaust.

I first saw her work as part of ASU Art Museum’s print collection, around the time I was photographing animals in emotionally charged contexts. As omnipresent as animals are in our lives, and as much as meat is a large part of world society, there are surprisingly few artists who are creating work sympathetic to animals. I truly believe it is a subject that most people don’t want to see and don’t want to discuss because it means they have to question their own values and complicity in the horrific system of animal exploitation.
