Polly Morgan

I went to see Polly Morgan's  "Endless Plains"exhibition today. Very interesting. I really like her work and have been following her work since I first read about her last year.Polly Morgan is a new breed of taxidermist mixing sculpture and now 2D works with taxidermy. It makes for very macabre viewing but very beautiful. The drawings of bird nests seem very ordinary until you notice the small bodies of the dead birds which relate to each nest laying on the top of the frame. Also the drawing is made with the cremated carcasses of the birds. Like I said quite macabre.

As it happens she is a very collectable artist and very much in vogue at the moment. The gallery space is very dark and it took a moment for my eyes to adjust to the dark, when I did I realized I was sharing the gallery with Jude Law.
