On The Hunt
Tony Angell’s passion for nature began in childhood, through exploring and studying wildlife and his artistic talent is innate. He developed and strengthened his skills through drawing and sculpting from life, often through study of the wild creatures he has rehabilitated. Angell’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures capture the characteristics and gestures of his subjects, beautifully communicating moments he has witnessed in the wild. Telling the stories of the animals who inspire his work, Angell’s work continues to expand our appreciation of the uniqueness and personalities each living thing exudes.
About On The Hunt, Angell states: "It has been my good fortune to live in close company with several species of owls among them the pygmy owl. An injured pygmy was rehabilitated before release and during its stay it flew about our home, perched inquisitively on our window drapes and chased mice across our living room floor. Here is a hunter that occupies our higher mountain slopes in spring and summer and descends to the lowlands in fall and winter. Diminutive it may be but spirited beyond measure."
