Artist and naturalist Sarina Brewer recycles the natural into the unnatural, breathing new life into the animals she resurrects. While earning her BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design she worked predominantly with found objects, most of which were animal remains. Over the years preparing these animal remains for use in her sculpture and abstract paintings slowly evolved into taxidermy. She volunteers her skills in the biology department of the Science Museum of Minnesota and is also engaged in various natural history related projects for other educational institutions and museums. She is a strong proponent of wildlife conservation who also participates in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in her spare time.www.sarina-brewer.com

We hold events that bring together intellectuals and independent thinkers engaged in the exploration of our shared mortality by sharing knowledge and art. Death is sanitized and hidden in contemporary culture to the point of becoming a taboo subject. We aim to subvert this death denial by opening up conversations with the public about death and its anthropological, historical, and artistic contributions to culture. In the spirit of the 18th-century salon, our informal intellectual gatherings include one multi-day annual Death Salon event and smaller one-day Death Salon events hosted in cities worldwide.www.deathsalon.org
The Freak Parade is a dazzling parade of images that celebrates beauty in aberrance. The parade’s hapless yet noble characters march gaily across a black expanse, each member on a different panel. The procession begins with “Anatomy Boy,” an elegant lad flayed from the shoulders down, and ends with “Sweeper,” a grim reaper dressed in a costume that might be described as “heavy metal Watteau.” All the parade participants are rendered in loving detail and delicately embellished with tiny rhinestones. Woodruff began this project in late 2000 as a reaction against the global standardization of culture. Among the references are sideshow banners, Pompeian wall frescoes, Baroque religious paintings, theatrical posters, and Victorian penmanship charts. References to “normal” parades (Mummers, Tournament of Roses, Mardi Gras, Macy’s) are included but turned on their heads. Each image has a caption, title, or poem included. Written by the artist, these texts add another level of meaning to the pictures. They are deliberately subdued and darkened and subvert the viewer’s usual response, so conditioned through advertising, to image and text.www.thomaswoodruff.com/freak-parade
