The Dying Animal was a group exhibition where six artsits took Phillip Roth’s book ‘The dying animal’ as a starting point for a week of creation. Varsity said: “De Freston’s monoprints are restrained responses to the theme. The murky clouds of ink half-conceal couples engaged in sexual contortions borrowed from the Kama Sutra . The mottled ink slicks draw in the eye before unveiling the intertwined figures. Here is sex treated with measure and nuance, with a sense of privacy rather than voyeurism.”
