Ah!, Valency Genis, a vital gear in the world of Circus Posterus and a hilarious minion that cracks everyone up (she will kill me for that I think). Well Valency besides both of those, is an amazing talent and her work is a pleasure to enrich any wall!
Valency has an aptitude for creating creatures that even Dr. Seuss never dreamed up, and she has a fondness for putting these creations in the form of a taxidermy wall mount. Now do not be alarmed because these lovely animals are not true taxidermy but the much preferred proper faux taxidermy. Honestly, where else will you see a wall mount with an animal resembling the extinct genus Hippotragus leucophaeus with guinea worms all over it? The animals run from fascinating antlered walrus creations to the not so mythical chupacabra, but these are fun creations that are just like her personality. With Valency, the gambit is endless on what she can do with her art, and I can’t wait to see what awesomeness she is contributing to Stranger Factory’s “Subterrane” group sculpture exhibit coming Nov. 9.
