About Colleen Brewer

My work is mainly inspired by nature, creatures and animals, both dead and alive. I find I am drawn to what some may find disturbing or macabre, animals and insects that others would not deem ‘cute’. Unsettling the viewer is something I enjoy doing as well as challenging a person to question their own reasoning for finding the subject matter so repulsive. The images are intertwined with things that disturb and confuse me, political ideologies, social interaction, development in the western world, the lack of in the rest.
