artist: kitty wales

Kitty Wales recreates the animals of our daily companionship from the refuse of our daily lives. Her sculptural installations, sometimes occupying an entire gallery room, engage as thoroughly as would the actual creature.
This is partially because she takes great care to study each chosen animal in its home territory; also partially because of her deft and skillful transformation of cast-off stuff into faithful anatomies. Her drawings are shots of a fully fashioned world, from which animals peer out with curiosity or go about their work.

See her installations - look particularly for "Dog Factory" and "Canis Ex Machina". Some individual animals here.
