About the Artist
Richard Ahnert takes anthropomorphic painting to a new level, lacing it
with a quiet, yet unmistakable animism – an abiding kinship between human
and animal. He uses the relationship between animals and humans to
explore themes of emotion, metaphor, and narrative with a satirical
twist. Storytelling, understated humour, and deep reflection are at the
heart of his practice.
Richard has exhibited his paintings in exhibitions and galleries in both Canada and the United States. His work has won awards and can be found in private collections and businesses in North America and Europe.
