Tessa Farmer

Tessa Farmer's work is incredible in its intricate detail. Evil skeletal "fairies" dominate, torture, murder and devour insects, birds and small mammals. She creates another world with gruesome materials.

Seen at Birminham's Waterhall Gallery -
I initially overlooked the glass case holding her sculpture but further into the room was her stop motion animation film in collaboration with Sean Daniels. Here is an extract.
Seeing these creatures come to life was amazing.
