As I discussed previously, I'm using a series of otter (Lutra canadensis) heads to reflect on themes related to 'otherness' and the sublime.
Each of these heads was kiln-fired with a different treatment. There's also a distinct array of visual language in each treatment. I won't elaborate much right now. Overall, intent is for each piece to be a little unsettling. I find a lot of typical wildlife art to be disappointing. I want to challenge the fashion in which a lot of wildlife art (and other depictions of wild animals) serves as a projection of our assumptions in the face of the unknowable.
