taxidermy art

Using anomalies of nature and the freak show tents of yesteryear for inspiration, Brewer creates pieces laced with environmental, social, and political commentary. Some messages are overt, while others are ambiguous. Under a translucent veil of unsettling humor, these satirical pieces make statements about topical issues via metaphor. Her eccentric twist on classic sideshow themes has transcended the taxidermy gaffs of dusty dime museums and carved out a niche for taxidermy of this nature in the world of pop surrealism.
