Kristen Woodward  “Trophy in Blue” mixed media on wooden antler plaque

Statement:

Traveling to Reutlingen Germany in 2014, I was struck by small Black Forest plaques that incorporated tiny antlers of Roe deer.  These antique and vintage wooden pieces were ubiquitous, and emblematic of the region. Small and precious, for me they recalled grotesque jewelry.  Upon returning home to Pennsylvania, I started looking for similar antler plaques at local flea markets.I created a large group of what I call Hunter-Gatherer pieces on these found objects.  It is my hope that these landscapes and human body parts recall predator-prey relationships, as the landscape itself occupies the position of a trophy.
