Odditerrarium is a fine art series of pet portraits, an artist book and a nonsense poem created by Sue Clancy

About the fine art series Clancy says:

“I began Odditerrarium, a new whimsical household surrealism series, because I wonder what may be on our dogs’ or cats’ minds. Would their mental lives reflect people, objects and plants they see every day?  A terrarium is a small ecosystem in a glass enclosure usually holding exotic plants. I expand that to include household objects that I imagine pets might think about, in probably odd ways, as they live within our lives. The cloche or terrarium becomes a food bowl with a glass dome in my ink and gouache paintings and the pet wears this like a hat so it becomes a thought bubble we can read. Humans, similarly, live in enclosed environments made of stories. So I enjoy thinking of our interior lives and what I imagine might be the interior lives of our pets.”
