About the artwork
This dog was designed by Reese Geronimo. When Reese was a child she was friends with someone named Trisha, who was blind and had a dog named Texas. Whenever Trisha came over to their family home there was celebration in the air; it was a time of festivity, happiness and love as the Geronimo family celebrated an old friend. This piece explores the themes of joy and happiness surrounding these heroic dogs. The use of the brightly coloured baubles expresses the festivity and gratification of the independence that these pups bring into people’s lives. It is an expression of celebration, pride and optimism for those who have been given a chance to lead a fulfilled life.
