King Street Gallery on William - Rod McRae







Penguins, polar bears and other glorious stuffed creatures from the animal kingdom... The heart of the matter!!! This is probably the most diverse show I've seen so far at this gallery... And a real treat it is too... Packed to the rafters when I arrived and filming it had it's difficulties...

Playing God in recreating natures intended course could turn Darwin’s theory of Evolution on it’s head...

Although, what is plainly present within these works is man’s unintended eventual destruction of the once beloved natural world... ‘War and Peace’, two Magellanic Penguins standing upon a nest of plastic soldiers reminds us of the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ that’s slowly killing off the Albatross...

‘Blessed are the Meek’, not what Nature intended, the lamb eating man... this is what horror movies are made of... ‘The Disney World’, carnivorous infighting between Bambi and friends... Man’s attempt with creating a ‘new order’, one of which would never work as we all saw in the film ‘Frankenstein’

This is a spectacular show which just may freak you out...
