My human friends are goats

Tommy's EyesCOLETTE JONQUIERES – Painter
This video is about her friend Tommy and the goat painting that has his eyes.
Collette states about her work:
"Over the last nine months I’ve been working on a series of portrait paintings using goats as my subjects, but with a twist. The paintings are based on people I know.
Using the principals of human portraiture, I wanted to create a vocabulary of facial expression and features which seem to echo our own physical characteristics and personality traits. Ones that remind us of ourselves, where the viewer may find that the creatures they are looking at may be somewhat familiar to themselves.
As in the previous animal portraiture work, I have created knitted landscapes as the background, but in this instance, instead of using landscapes that surround me, I have where possible, created landscapes that the people I know live in, or have had a connection to in the past."
