Melissa Dixson is not afraid of death. In fact, she contemplates and confronts it on a daily basis in her Brooklyn taxidermy studio.
"I am beginning to explore the possibilities of taxidermy as the "ultimate" trophy, whether it be the spoils of the hunter, or the spoils of merely having reached a certain level of power or accomplishment. Art, in itself, is a trophy. In the context of my work, nature becomes art, and therefore, trophy."
