Kate Clark’s must have Halloween dreams. The Brooklyn sculptor’s haunting work stays with you. She explores the intersection between the human and animal worlds in life-like taxidermy tableaus. Clark’s work is part of a new exhibition at Rick Wester Fine Art in New York, They Are Us: Animal Identity and The Anthropomorphic Urge on view September 19, 2013 to November 2, 2013.

On her sculpture, Kate has this to say,”our current lifestyle does not necessitate physical interaction with wild animals. Yet we revere the natural world…” and continues,”the viewer has an intimate relationship with the [human] face and then identifies with the animal.”

After graduating from Cornell University and Cranbrook Academy, Clark’s profile has been on a steady rise. This year she has exhibited at the Halle Saint Pierre Museum, Paris, France, Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Alberta Canada, The Art Gallery at Cleveland State University, and Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art to name a few.

Both beautiful and unsettling, her work is tailor made for the Halloween season.
