Polly Morgan (born 1980) is a London-based British artist who uses taxidermy to create works of art.
Very impressive work of creepy art.
The animals used in her taxidermy are contributed by vets or pet owners; the animals have died naturally or accidentally, for example they may have been roadkill.
Morgan’s first four pieces caught the attention of Banksy: A lovebird looking in a mirror; a squirrel holding a bell jar with a little fly perched inside on top of a sugar cube; a magpie with a jewel in its beak; and a couple of chicks standing on a miniature coffin’. In 2005, he commissioned her to produce work for Santa’s Ghetto, an annual exhibition he organised near London’s Oxford Street.
You can watch this little documentary about her work and see her studio.
Enjoy today’s creepy discovery and happy watching.
