taxidermy art

Using anomalies of nature and the freak show tents of yesteryear for inspiration, Brewer creates pieces laced with environmental and sociopolitical commentary. Some messages are overt, while others are ambiguous. Under their translucent veil of uncomfortable humor, these satirical pieces make statements about topical issues via metaphor. Her eccentric twist on classic sideshow themes has transcended the taxidermy gaffs of carnivals and dusty dime museums, and garnered taxidermy of this nature a place in art world as a form of pop surrealist sculpture.
