Artist Elaine Bradford joins me to talk about a range of topics, including our cats, beer, and of course her art! She discusses the origins of her earliest crochet pieces as well as how and why she came to use taxidermy. We touch on some of her larger installations from the past and also discuss the types of work she’s doing now. Elaine’s newest exhibition, MASK, opens August 9th at The Front in New Orleans!
