Ron Pippin's Skeletal Taxidermy Art

The Laboratory

Ron Pippin works in skeletons and other remains, combining them with vintage science and electrical components in ways that are intriguing and creepy.

His artist statement is a bit too pretentious for me to quote here, but you can find it and many more examples of his work at Obsolete, Inc.

Woah, that's ultra creepy. It's Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang on bad acid at the Museum of Natural History.

Taxidermy is an underrated art. Even some of our most open-minded artist friends shun it. It's probably because dead things are an antipathy for most people.

My thoughts exactly, David. It's like a Museum of Natural History in an alternate steampunk universe.

I found his Statement very informative, explanatory, modestly clear in his intent and full of delightful introspection and honest useful purpose, it is no bad or small thing to dream your creations and then create your visions...few can and he does:)
