ART: TROY EMERY

Melbourne-based artist Troy Emery brings new insight to the taxidermy trend and animals as objects with his Making Friends collection on display at Gould Galleries through March. Emery’s pieces, vividly colored in a rainbow spectrum and crafted from polyester pom-poms and fringe, include animals real and imaginary in poses of aggression or relaxation. Their cuddly exterior is at odds with the realism of their shape and pose, producing an almost hallucinatory reaction in the eye of the beholder and demanding more than a second look.
