I am Ape: Lisa Roet | Author: Ray Edgar

For over three decades Lisa Roet's multidisciplinary art has been recognised for engaging primatologists and taxonomists, language experts and zoologists in exploring what it is to be human through our relationship with apes. Trading on past representations of apes, Roet operates within the realms of still-life, caricature, landscape, classical sculpture and Pop art.

Aesthetically rich, diverse and complex, her work always returns to the same terrain: the great ape, human-animal relationships, the degradation of the Earth, species extinction and hope for the future. Roet has become the major voice of the last half-century in exploring how inextricably linked human and animal are in the age of the Anthropocene.
