In The Flesh

“In the Flesh”; chicken wire, canvas, light; 20″ x30″; 2008; © Meg Thompson. Available.

This skull shape fleshes out the image of the live cow only when the lighting is right. The shadow works to emphasize the presence of fluid life from base forms; life-like energy from still life matter. I personally appreciate how the horns in the metal sculpture transform in the shadow into docile ears.
