Kate Clark, a Brooklyn-based artist, creates surreal, beautiful coalescence of human and animal sculptures. She uses regular sculptural elements, and real animal hides that make her artworks lifelike and so realistic… and a bit disturbing. It seems our genetic engineering has advanced profoundly and defied the natural order of nature. But no worries, the artist simply wanted to artistically depict the coexistence of humans and animals, exploring the evolution, history and relationship of both kingdoms.
“When encountering my sculptures, the viewer is faced with a lifelike fusion of human and animal that investigates which characteristics separate us within the animal kingdom, and more importantly, which unite us. The sculptures visually, emotionally and intellectually explore this overlap that exists across cultures, along histories, and within societies.” ~ Kate Clark
