Rebeca Gilling’s unusual human-animal hybrids are 3-D fantasy artwork. Some of her creations are mounted just like taxidermal work except that these were the figments of her fertile imagination.
One exceptional piece is the “conjoined” heads of horned men. Another is a man-octopus hybrid.
She says, “In my work, I am a mad scientist. In my work, I am playing God.”
She uses clay for her sculptures which she describes to being a little like a scientist which she once aspired to be when she was young. She gets to experiment with the clay.
She adds, "Clay is based on physics and chemistry and in my work I embrace biology.”
