Austyn Taylor / Fine Art / Sculpture / Rat

$ 495.00

Rat by Austyn Taylor is a charming addition to any shelfie. Rat calls back to our animist history where wandering spirits found refuge in masks and idols. Austyn's playful approach is revealed through the lens of sacred American cartoon tropes. Lucky us, animals that imagine being human.

Austyn says, "I am a humanist, optimist and I suppose, a humorist, too. I make work that is strong and bold while balancing honesty and humility." 

From the artist: My work is formed within the populist style of American animation, I give the figures a meta-modernist examination and then pose them to stare self-consciously at the absurdity of our collective humanity. The resulting sculpted and drawn works use “concerned humor” to address subconscious pseudo-spiritual scripts underlying popularly embodied mythologies (psychologies) of self.
