In this series of ink drawings and collages, Adelle van Zyl combines the literary genre of the fable with aspects of the human psyche, in order to comment on the human condition.
Fables are short stories that convey moral lessons by means of animals with anthropomorphic features, such as the ability to speak and act like humans. The artist draws on her experience as a illustrator of children’s books, as she employs animal imagery with themes of fear and fantasy for her current body of work.  For the artist, animals reflect the fragility of the human psyche and her work often touches on psychological aspects and reflects on the key events and characteristics which form the core of human existence.
