These wondrous creations are the work of the artist duo known as Frederique Morrel.
These exquisite sculptures are created using fibre glass taxidermy moulds which are then injected with expanding foam. The tapestries used to embellish the sculptures are vintage works that have been salvaged from jumble sales and markets. The old embroideries are collected together and reworked into the surfaces of these new works of art.
I’m always interested to see new and interesting ways of making and presenting embroidered works of art and these are certainly some of the most well produced and high impact works I’ve come across so far. You can view more of Frederique Morrel’s work at www.frederiquemorrel.com.
