The Elephant Factor

Feel free and ask/tell me anything.  
I'm a 25 year old artist with a degree in Sequential Art. When I can, I post art. When I can't, I post someone else's. This is my inspiration.

Polly Morgan.

Polly Morgan’s highly evocative work plays with scale and personification of animals through taxidermy still lives.  

From her website:

Her intention has never been to mimic the natural habitats of animals, as they are traditionally displayed, but to place them in less expected scenery.  The scale and settings are often unnatural, but the animals are never anthropomorphized.  Seeing them out of place encourages us to look at them as if for the first time; a rat sheds its association with horror and disease and can be rightly viewed as a beautiful animal.
