Local Fauna (in progress!) is an exhibition of animal-themed linocut prints by Sharon Chin, produced to accompany writer Zedeck Siew’s short stories about fantastic Southeast Asian flora and fauna.
These works explore the ways in which our world is intruded upon by the animal and vegetable, whether it be myth, politics, culture, or the environment.
This exhibition showcases 20 linocuts made during Sharon’s 3-month stint at the Hotel Penaga Artists’ Residency in Georgetown, Penang.
It also aims to document the process of collaboration between Sharon and Zedeck, as they work towards finishing a book – which will comprise 75 stories, each beautifully illustrated.
A number of editions of these linocut prints are available for sale. Proceeds will fund production of the book! Below are two of the works, and you can see a few more here.
