An exemplary example of creating life out of death, Lindsey Wohlman’s “Bringing Audubon’s ‘Birds of America’ To Life” at Crimson Hilt is equally shocking and amazing. By utilizing the corpses of primarily dead birds, the artist creates scenes reminiscent of the lives these animals lived before death.
In addition to hunting scenes with birds of prey, Lindsey also produces scenes of mothers nourishing their young.
While viewing the artist’s work, I found myself forgetting about the reality of death and focusing on the life Lindsey brings into her pieces. A fresh perspective on death–breathing new life into an ever-decaying world.
