Petrichor Gallery invites you to the exhibition of
Megan Anderson is an artist and writer based in Fremantle. Since 2013, she has pursued an art practice under the guise of Hangdog Art. Her gaze is drawn to offbeat, slightly wonky dogs and their nuanced relationship to the human beings in their lives. She paints on a digital platform, producing archival art prints with wry titles.
She began her career in journalism more than two decades ago. She was a feature writer for the West Australian newspaper, editor of Scoop magazine, and travel writer for Fairfax, Travel + Leisure magazine and others. She writes stories about humans. Occasionally about fancy plunge pools.

The exhibitions is now closed but you can still view online here.

This work appears to be about dogs, but really it’s about people. The pooches are a kind of go-between. The small moments in which they’re captured point to a bigger picture: there is always more going on than meets the eye.

Hence the interviews. When probed – about the work they do, their deepest fears, their greatest joys, regrets, hopes and dreams – these characters had a fair bit to say. The written transcripts are partly a comment on how readily we impose our own ideas, emotions and experiences onto our pets. But mostly they’re a deep dive into the human condition. People are seldom well placed to describe themselves. Who better for the job than their best friends?
