"Inquietude" at Eye Lounge, which showcases paintings by Ellen Nemetz, explores the very same topic with a whimsical sense of humor. Nemetz's characters are animals that are capable of similar feelings as human beings. "By my use of anthropomorphized animals, I portray my own feelings of social anxiety, introspection and insecurity, humor and sarcasm. I often use animals as my subject matter because it allows me to depict emotions in a less threatening manner and to convey the humor in daily life. My twisted animal portraits have an element of psychological stress in them while striving to stay humorous, engaging, and thought provoking."
