“Troy Emery is an artist who lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. He graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Art (hons) at the Hobart School of Art, University of Tasmania in 2005. Troy completed a Masters of Fine Art at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney in 2010.
Emery’s art practice is an ongoing project of producing a series of artworks that investigate decoration and the animal form and the aesthetics of craft associated with natural history. In his sculpture practice, taxidermy foam bodies are covered in bright polyester pompoms and craft textiles such as tassle fringing. The artworks, non-descript predator animals with their playfully colourful pelts, become hyper exotic specimens in a menagerie of art / animal objects.” http://troyemery.blogspot.com/
