"Designer-derm": Designer toy meets taxidermy. Named after the contemporary designer-plush and urban vinyl art toys that inspired them, these works are fashioned entirely from animal hides. Their skin, fur, and feathers dyed to evoke a synthetic appearance, emulating their designer toy counterparts. Brewer introduced garishly colored hides into the genre of Rogue Taxidermy in 2006 and this avant-garde strain of her work is arguably her most important contribution to the genre. Her pop-surrealist works permanently transported taxidermy out of the hunting lodge and firmly infused it into the world of contemporary art. Like much of Brewer's work, the playfulness and tongue-in-cheek nature of these pieces seeks to break down preconceived notions about taxidermy and redefine the place it holds both aesthetically and ethically in the viewer's psyche.
