The Other Art Fair has announced that the special guest artist this autumn will be renowned taxidermy artist Polly Morgan.
Taxidermy as an art form is experiencing a revival and Morgan’s work is the most eagerly sought after by a host of important collectors including Damien Hirst, Thomas Olbricht, Omer Koc and Anita Zabludowicz. For The Other Art Fair, Morgan has created five limited edition hand-coloured gravure prints, featuring new works that tread the line between figuration and abstraction.
The prints are available to purchase exclusively for visitors to The Other Art Fair in signed and numbered editions of 50. Priced at £289, they present an opportunity to own an exclusive but affordable work of art by Britain’s foremost taxidermy artist.
Polly Morgan says of the prints:
‘It was important for me to hand colour them to draw attention to the contrasting surfaces, colours and textures, and to clearly define the negative space within the loops’.
The forthcoming edition of The Other Art Fair runs between 16th and 19th October 2014 and will take place at the Old Truman Brewery, E1.
