A still life is one way to describe Marian Drew’s narratives of deceased Australian animals created in the style of Renaissance paintings. “These creatures are not viewed from behind car windows or hanging from lines high above; they are there on the kitchen table, amongst the props that confirm to us that we are a breed apart from beasts. Their presence disturbs this comfort, implicating our involvement in the carnage, whether knowingly or not.”
Perhaps, salad for dinner?
