Art of Troy Emery

"Troy Emery is an artist based in Melbourne and has an object based sculptural practice…Emery refers to his sculptures as β€˜fake taxidermy’ because they mimic the process of taxidermy without actually producing a real result…For Emery, his animal sculptures represent his interest in the importance of surface in taxidermy and the way we view animals as decorative objects. The role of surface and colour in the production of these sculptures is an exaggeration of the qualities sought after in exotic wildlife…What fascinates Emery about these areas of investigation is that there is, especially historically, a place for fantastical, fake animals."
