John Espinosa:The Electric Animal Sculptures

Los Angeles based artist John Espinosa works primarily in sculpture and installation.  Much of his work often involves nature and animals in general.  Thus it can be easy to tie his art to ideas of ecology and the environment.  However, Espinosa’s artwork also really seems to be rather personal.  In his artwork he is often concerned with ideas of knowledge and belief, but particularly the way in which they exist between people.  Several of his sculptures depict animals joined by a jagged electric-like structure, as if communicating or interacting through it.  At times the animals seem frightened or aggressive and other times as if in the middle of a trance.  Yet they are all still joined, perhaps a reference to shared belief systems.

It’s very rare you see a domestic animal mount that looks lifelike. It’s even rarer to see a snub nosed wrinkly faced domestic animal mount that looks lifelike. Are we certain this isn’t a shopped photo of a living bulldog because holy shit it’s beautiful.

that is an absolutely phenomenal mount. Ive quite honestly never seen a pet mount that looked at all realistic.

This is one of the most impressive domestic animal mounts I’ve ever seen. More photos are in the link; it’s worthwhile to give ‘em a gander!

Recently I’ve been talking to a few Ndn folks and I constantly get questions on best taxidermists I would recommend bc I know some of y’all don’t do taxidermy but would love some new pieces or gift ideas, etc!

Now, one of my favorite taxidermists is right here on tumblr, Naturepunk!
Here’s here etsy! Her work is high quality, gorgeous, and so well taken care of and managed. By far my most favorite taxidermist. She also sells a few odds and ends as well as furs and bones! I couldn’t recommend her enough, and she lives completely off of her work, so it’s always nice supporting artists! Go check her out and give her some love!!!

Once again: HERE’S HER BLOG AND HER ETSY!! GO GO GO!!!
