Jamie Roadkill is a young Brooklyn based artist who features articulated skeletons of animals she has collected as roadkill in her works. The scenes she creates comment on the space between wild and domesticated animals, and how civilization has altered nature, seldom for the better, in it’s relentless pursuit of progress. Jamie processes the animals herself, finding beauty in their phantom absence, identity in their structures, and meaning in what is left of creatures that once roamed with flesh and presence. Her skeletons are gilded in 24k gold leaf as a means of giving these forgotten causalities indisputable value.
