Woodward Gallery transforms into a wildlife sanctuary this spring with Artist BK Foxx’s Kingdom. This is the premiere gallery exhibition for Street Artist BK Foxx whose focus is social awareness of animals. The “Kingdom” exhibition benefits the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) mission to conserve nature and to reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on earth. A portion of all sales from the exhibition, as well as direct donations, will be contributed to the fund set up in honor of BK Foxx’s “Kingdom”.
The word “animal” comes from the Latin “animalis” meaning having breath, having soul or living being. Among our many similar traits, animals contribute to human nature by sharing the commonality of communication. While our ability to communicate differs, it is clear we all do make our feelings known. BK Foxx paints the spectrum from house pets to wildlife with soulful realism expressing the docile nature of these animals.
While her urban murals are huge depictions of animals swimming, sitting, or reclining, the wildlife she brings into Woodward Gallery has an enormity, though not necessarily in scale. This gifted animal enthusiast conveys her broad expression of kinship urging the viewer to become one with the spirit of these beautiful creatures. BK Foxx exceptionally touches us humans with her paintings. She channels the attributes of animal species using spray paint, brush work and her longing to raise awareness for the importance and care of all life.
