OPENING RECEPTION “David Farrer: Mounted, but NOT Stuffed!” at Hooks-Epstein Galleries

May 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

MAY 18 – JUNE 15, 2024: Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents “Mounted, but NOT Stuffed!” featuring bespoke papier-mâché sculptures of animal “trophy heads” by UK-based artist, David Farrer.

The concept of these sculptures was originally inspired by Farrer’s travels to South Africa, beginning in 1995. Farrer sought to encompass the ecological and environmental impacts of trophy hunting, and he has been creating collaged animal heads ever since. The recycled materials used to create the sculptures also reflect Farrer’s interest in “green” matters and sustainability. The creatures depicted by Farrer have since diversified into European and North American species.
