During Miami Art last week I discovered the fascinating sculptures of Enrique Gomez de Molina. Using the parts of once-living animals, de Molina hopes to bring awareness to the danger faced by a multitude of species: nuclear and chemical waste, over development and deforestation, to name a few. Genetic engineering and human intervention also accounts for the conceptualization of these surreal pieces. Enrique de Molina puts into question the possibilities artificial evolution that the future holds.
It is fascinating to see the hybrid species he has created in some cases using part spotted skunk, fan tail pigeon, rooster, and ostrich or skunk, lamb, and deer hooves.
