fox taxidermy

Untitled (Fox)

The fox and wild boar piglet work speaks about survival of the fittest, the cunning fox and the weighty pig. The clever fox, who is claiming to help the piglet with her flying attempts, is actually setting her up for a terrible fall in order to get his next meal. The vein piglet, with her little winged harness, pigging out on marshmallows unfortunately will not get too far in her attempts to escape.

Gobsmacked

I am playing on the usual connotations between the cat and the bird with my piece Gobsmacked. The kitten as small as she is, and even while perched in the beak of the crow, still appears powerful, taunting the crow with her ball of ribbon. The association of black crows with death and war is an obvious reflection of its tendency to eat carrion, plenty of which is to be found in the aftermath of battle. Although the crow is associated with doom and destruction and is said to have mythological links to the other world, it can also mean “new life” which is portrayed in the new born kitten.
