Artist Sarina Brewer describes herself as “a self-proclaimed science nerd melding her past formal art education with her passion for biology and the bizarre.” And she does not disappoint. Her creations are inspiring and provocative, violent and poetic. In any case, they are definitely unique.
Brewer mostly uses dead animals to create taxidermy pieces like you’ve never seen before. But don’t worry… none of the animals used in Brewer’s work were killed for the purpose of using them in her art. All animal components are recycled. She utilizes salvaged roadkill and discarded livestock, as well as the many animal materials that are donated to her.
Her work goes from traditional taxidermy to mummification and esodermy, a new process she invented to valorize the inside parts of an animal. Her website offers a great selection jewelry, sculpture and wall art, perfect for your gothic tendencies. She also creates incredibly realistic fake pieces, like this Vulture head.
I’m deeply intrigued by her creations. In her own words, “Brewer deals with death, in what is considered by most, an unconventional manner.” If anything, her work is definitely offbeat…
If you’re looking to buy a disturbing conversation piece, I’m sure Custom Creature Taxidermy Arts has something in store for you.
