Three carvers of animals: Peter Grieves (France), Isaac Smith (USA), and J.L. Nippers (USA). Taking a cue from many North African artists, Peter Grieve carves animals in wood and then robes them with brightly colored recycled metals. Nippers fires up a chainsaw to free his animals from wood and paints them with polka dots. Louisiana native Isaac Smith just attempts to find the essential nature of animal.
