Gallery Mondays: Kimberly Witham’s Sleepy Squirrel

on ripeness and rot last rites gallery kimberly witham

You may remember the beautiful deer by Kimberly Witham from On Ripeness and Rot at Last Rites Gallery that I posted for a Gallery Mondays last fall.

Since winter is coming, I’ve decided to feature another one of her creations, this time, a squirrel. She features squirrel’s in quite a few of her pieces.

Squirrels are such random animals. One second they’re running up a tree, and the next they’re stopped in the middle of the street waiting for a car to get just close enough to almost run them over.

I love that this squirrel is calm, in a sleepy state. I really want to believe he’s not dead.

Also, why a lemon wedge and not a nut?

Gallery Mondays: On Ripeness and Rot

Is it still hunting season?

I saw this rather interesting piece of art last month at Last Rites Gallery in Midtown. The piece is part of Kimberly Witham’s On Ripeness and Rot series, which contrasts fresh fruits with dead animal carcasses.

How’s that for morbid?

It’s crazy how she combines the two so gracefully, almost as they appear in nature. Take away the bowl and you have an innocent deer against a white background with berries dangling from a branch above her.
