Four Creatures

Allison Janae Hamilton (b. 1984, Lexington, Kentucky, United States) lives and works in New York, New York, United States. Four Creatures depicts four Florida cypress trees covered with motifs signifying vestiges of human and animal life, such as piercing eyes, mouths, claws, and mythic constellations. The sculpture is a commentary on climate change and specifically on the complex and often conflictual relationship between the land and its inhabitants.
