Selective breeding, the process where humans choose which traits should be passed on, has long been a part of farming. In Strange Breeds, printmaker S.V. Medaris explores the extremes of breeding through her depictions of the farm dogs, hogs, and chickens that surround her every day on her farm near Mount Horeb. Medaris brings her love of animals to life through images that are amusing, surprising, and thought-provoking, successfully fulfilling her goal to, “show the amazing, truly fascinating lives of the animals we surround ourselves with.”
