Note: I was first introduced to this artist's work by Diane from Wouldn't You Like To See Something Strange and I recently was reminded of her work by Suicide Blonde. Thanks to them both!!!

K.Line said...

J: This is SO disturbing. I'm actually freaked out!

TERI REES WANG said...

Trip out!...

Organic and toxic and blandly exotic.

I am liking all the bunnies of course but, I am taking a special liking to the "Canary"...living in a twin house of available lungs.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Very interesting Easter bunny choices... I absolutely love your blog and your brave choices, Drollgirl! Also I'm a huge skull fun and immediately fell for the serpentine.

SabinePsynopsis said...

skull FAN! Gee, typing...

Very cool. I especially like "canary" and "solastalgia".

Charlotte said...

some were scary, but others were beautiful!!

Panty Buns said...

Hmmm... that intricate sculpture by Kate MacDowell is artful, intricate and bizarre. I must have found the right blog, since I've heard the comment "bizarre" with reference to something or other about myself more than once.

Punctuation Mark said...

Shocking and controversial... Love it!!!

Diane said...

she is indeed amazing!

Karisa Tells All said...

Ela said...

I love the 'Canary'! Wow.

Happy weekend!

p.s. Thank you for your sweet words on my last post, I hope you get everything you want too, hon. And sorry for making you cry :)

the spectator said...

Very Dali-ish, I think.

Dancing Branflake said...

So weird but I absolutely love her titles. Very thought provoking to say the least.

Diana said...

I would take them all!

E said...

I love when you post interesting new artists, especially ones that make me do a double-take like these :-)

Miri said...

I loove the one with the canaries and the one below with the koala. Sooo cute!

girl Japan said...

Well..it's kinda Goth? Great, and at the same time, disturbing.

Kitty Stampede said...

These are all soo wicked. I freaking LOVE Daphne. LOVE.

Mrsblogalot said...

Very interesting!!!

Cheryl said...

Intriguing and delicate. Makes me wish I'd thought of that.

jennifer from pittsburgh said...

Striking and imaginative! Just brilliant!

Andhari said...

I'm very curious. She seriously has talent!

Fragrant Liar said...

Wow. Wild. Wonderful. Weird.

stacy said...

These are undeniably interesting and detailed. Some are beautiful and some are creepy... I am torn. But there is no question that this requires talent -- and probably a knowledge of anthropology.

Asylum Dolly said...

WOW. I'm blown away! These are magnificent! So detailed, and beautiful and disturbing...I will definitely be doing some research into her work now! Thanks for sharing :) You always pick out the coolest art!

Iva said...

Down and Out Chic said...

so amazingly disturbing. nothing like an animal in a gas mask to start my monday morning :)

Pretty Little World said...

I love.love.love these!

B. was a little disappointed that there were no lung badgers, though he seemed to be okay in accepting lung sparrows as a substitute.

Big Red said...

Cool and creepy. But more creepy. I have a feeling I will have weird dreams tonight about my bones coming out of my skin.

sealaura said...

this was kinda fun to look through. it would be sweet yet creepy (kinda like some people!) but definitely eye catching. I love the contrasts.
