Kadie Salfi: Apex Predator: Body Parts

March 30, 2012 - June 23, 2012

Artist Kadie Salfi combined beauty and tragedy in her work Apex Predator: Body Parts Series. Simple yet powerful graphics depicted animals targeted for their body parts by humans, the world’s leading apex predators, in the $20 billion illegal wildlife trade. Through the use of vibrant jewel tones and Pop Art influences this work invited us to contemplate the fine balance between commodity and aesthetics. Kadie grew up in Vermont and currently lives in Ithaca, NY where she helps run Comet, a sustainable skateboard company.
