Project 1 - of, I hope, many. I have a lot to learn, now, to remove The Curse of Microscopic Bubbles! [Resin, Acrylic Paint, Bones (opossum, squirrel, unidentified skull)]
I was horrified when I first discovered I had an interest in taxidermy. It was so different from anything I’d explored before and seemed so… macabre.
There was a lot of ugly crying involved.
I came to accept my interest in the art long before I realized why it has a special draw for me. And, as unpopular as my feelings may be with some, it does have to do, in part, with death. I have had a lot of deaths in my life, in many forms: rejection by my family, mental health setbacks over and over, failures and hurt as I struggled to learn how to live as a human being with personal integrity. Along with the mix of biology, creativity and raw skill that taxidermy presented, I also got a message: When life thinks it’s done having its way with you, you gather up the pieces, create something wonder-full and shout back, “I’m not finished, mofo!”
