‘They remind me of many things, of ancient cave paintings I saw deep under the ground in Spanish caves, of beautiful illustrations in old books about hunters and their prey, of mythical creatures tearing at the innocent flesh of young girls and they make me think of the animalistic, primal side of me and others I've met.’
There is so much life and lust and passion and beauty conveyed through these images of wild beasts copulating. I think anyone looking at them must be confronted with their own raw desires and sexuality. I don't refer to those with an interest in bestiality but to the animal within all of us which though shackled by societies expectations attempts to free itself when given the opportunity.' - Elizabeth Johnstone, psychology student.
Tiffany Titshall exhibits at Central Goldfields Gallery & Space39 in Melbourne.

In the studio and other places
Tiffany Titshall works in charcoal on paper from her studio in central Victoria. From landscapes and follies to darker, more overt images of animals and devils, her work always simmers with hints of her inner world.
