Portland-based artist Peter Gronquist has created a body of work that manages to culture-jam the timeless practice of stuffing animals. Juxtaposing familiar corporate and luxury logos, American weaponry and adorable (if moderately deceased) animal busts, Gronquist criticizes American consumer culture with a touch of darkness. With a Gucci-brand deer head and a bison rocking a crown of four pump-action shotgun, the series hits that perfect mixture of sexy and cerebral. It’s also pretty screwed up. (Images: DesignBoom)
