Art Description

Sculpture: Taxidermy on Other.

The dramatic, yet calming nature of this sculpture seeks to conceptualise the notion of taxidermy and its habitat. Rather then using traditional reeds and grass, the kingfisher is placed inquisitively amongst real resin cast fruit.

My fine art attention to detail ensures the lifelike, and honest sense of expression, this moment of transience, that will stay with the piece in its new life.

Simply mounted, in a modern and crisp style, prevents a distraction from the glory of the specimen. It also seeks to heighten and emphasise the beauty of the bird, the stark colours of a bird not often remembered.
