Taxidermic

By on Nov 5, 2013

For this project I wanted to create a series of taxidermied heads in miniature using a process which is capable of creating multiples. As a printmaker it is important to my own practice and aesthetic choices that the processes I choose to use be able to reproduce almost exactly any imagery I create. For this project I feel that multiplicity speaks to the nature of taxidermy as an art form, and by creating my own personal collection of taxidermied animals in miniaturized form, I am also referencing the power dynamics which can take place in the production of, and placement of the forms themselves. In this project specifically I created five animal heads (I am still trying to figure out the logistics/possibilities of display) that are representations of animals hunted and mounted as taxidermy in this fashion in North America. And lastly please excuse my poor documentation, the images...
