Still Life After Death (Fox)

BIO– British artist Polly Morgan’s love for animals and desire to preserve them led her to learn taxidermy. Since then she has gravitated towards making still lives with the animals as subjects. Her intention has never been to mimic the natural habitats of animals, but to place them in less expected scenery. The scale and settings are often unnatural, but the animals are never anthropomorphized. Seeing the out of place encourages us to look at them as if for the first time and appreciate their beauty.
