More than just taxidermy and little girls and bears??
The above work by the artist Carolyn Salas shows a deer -- one of many that seem to crop up left and right in. Why is this? Similar to what we discussed earlier this year with the "little girl/ bear" imagery, what are these images we see frequently? What themes do they indicate? What themes, ideas occupy our generation? (I think narrative is a big one - we all want to make our own little worlds a la Trenton Doyle Hancock....)
So what do we want to say with our show? "isms and itties" in the sculpture department was a fun investigation - a tongue in cheek comment on criticism -- so are we criticizing, investigating, celebrating, making a tribute to, rebelling against, manifestoeing, muckrackering, ...........or what?
