When Boston born artist Jessica Joslin was a little girl, she loved her collection of articulated skeletons’, spending her time wandering the halls of the Natural History museum where there were skeletons of all kinds of creatures including hundreds of beautiful, exotic taxidermy animals and tropical birds exhibited in old wooden and brass vitrines.

Brass Menagerie is Jessica Joslins new exhibition coming this autumn. Her creatures are intricate fusions of bone, brass, antique hardware and other bits ‘n’ bobs. Sparkling glass eyes are inset in kid leather, giving these fanciful hybrids the illusion of life and animation.

Jessica’s work celebrates wit, insightful curiosity and skill, giving her anatomical structures personalities, and the illusion that they are actually living beings.
