Century Zoo (mud)
Century Zoo is an evolving collection of drawings that are inspired by objects from Neolithic and Classical Antiquity. These drawings aggressively blend, distort, and flatten elements of this quintessential period of Western Art History into an expressive collection of quickly rendered works. Each piece is made from a mix of mud, charcoal, and paint – then brashly curated into an installation comprised of wooden stakes on a stage (or stages).
The installation has been presented three times since 2011 where it was initially shown under the name My Century Zoo at the Kohler Art Center in Wisconsin on a singular 6 X 16 foot plinth.
