Animal Herds Installation
“Animal Herds” is a mobile installation piece of hundreds of small cut out animal paintings that are assembled in the life size forms of wolves. The wolf is made of the animals that it eats, including deer, caribou, moose, musk oxen, bison, mice and many others. Each animal is painted on vellum with radiant color bleeds in fluid ink, which is countered by the specificity of the cut animal shape. It investigates the idea of the predator and prey relationship and how the energy from the prey lives on through the predator when it is consumed. The piece can change each time it is installed, therefore becoming a new form of existence for each installation.
