local fauna: work by pamela valfer | november 15th 2008

the roadkill and refuse of our contemporary mechanized society...

in her upcoming exhibition, st. paul artist pamela valfer challenges the viewer to re-interpret sublime landscapes and ideals of beauty and death. valfer combines lush, vivid drawings of animals struck by cars with quilts entirely made out of reclaimed fur. the result of this visual marriage is a painstaking and detailed exploration of man's influence on our modern landscape.
