'Fabulous Creatures' is a 3-part series looking at three artists: Troy Emery, Kate Rohde and Tarryn Gill who work with sculpture reimagining the natural world in extreme and colourful ways.
By building alternative visions of life and death, and drawing on a love and fascination with animals and playing with the idea of trophy and memento, they create an escape from the way we traditionally view nature and the creatures and worlds that surround us.
Exploring a glittery dark world Perth artist Tarryn Gill creates magical creatures with her hands. Inspired by her own life and by the concept of death and memorial.
Faux taxidermy is how Melbourne-based artist Troy Emery describes his work. His colourful sculptures explore our relationship and history with the animal world.
Inspired by a childhood roaming amongst nature Kate Rohde is a Melbourne based artist who creates vivid colourful sculptures imbued with fantasy and a love for the extremes of the natural world.
