Artist and naturalist in Minneapolis, Minnesota
THE ROGUE REVOLUTION
October 2014 marked the 10 year anniversary of the birth of a genre of pop-surrealist art dubbed "Rogue Taxidermy". The genre was the brainchild of Sarina Brewer and cohorts Scott Bibus & Robert Marbury. Together they spearheaded an art movement which has continued to gain momentum exponentially. Since its inception the genre has proven to be as controversial as it is contagious. Images of this unique variety of work now saturate every corner of the internet and it has inspired a revolution. The introduction of Rogue Taxidermy created a trend in the art world that changed the perception and assumptions about taxidermy, not only in galleries, but also in contemporary aesthetics. Its presence in galleries has carried over into popular culture, as attested to by the countless window displays and home decor magazines featuring decorative objects that mimic taxidermy. The efforts of their group laid the foundation for what has exploded into a global phenomenon and Sarina Brewer is recognized as one of the key figures whose work jump-started the popularity of taxidermy related art.
