David Blyth Talk
David Blyth held a talk discussing his work which is curently being showcased in his Strange Attractor show currently on display within the exhibition space at Aberdeen Business School.
Focusing mainly on British birds and mammals, David has created a world which challenges people’s expectations of taxidermy and presents the pieces in a completely new way.
“I would like people to go away with a sense of wonder of nature and re-question our relationship with the natural world. There are a lot of serious points, but I think there is humour here, too.”
To make the exhibition, which features over 50 individual pieces as well as painted studies and photographic works, David searched for unloved or battered bits of taxidermy online before looking for different ways that the animals could be presented.
Strange Attractor goes on display in the exhibition space at the Georgina Scott Sutherland Study Centre, Aberdeen Business School, Robert Gordon University, from Saturday, September 27. It will run until the end of the year.
