Centaurs, who doesn’t love ’em? But chop off the torso and you get the entire spectrum of reactions. That’s been the experience of Brooklyn-based artist Kate Clark, who loves to make taxidermied animals that have realistic human faces.

Artist’s statements are usually as incomprehensible as product press releases, but Kate is refreshingly direct in articulating her vision. She understands why some people might be shocked or horrified at her work, but for her they encourage us to reflect on the characteristics that we share with the rest of the animals.
