An ardent environmentalist, Gin Stone moved to Cape Cod from New York City and currently utilizes retired local commercial longline fishing gear; cutting, hand dying and re-piecing it to create her work. Humane Taxidermy and Creatures is a body of work comprising three-dimensional full size taxidermy pieces created from the gear and line. Themes of portent and oddity frequent her work.
Gin’s work has most recently been shown in Tribeca at The Untitled Space, at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the National Prize Show (two years in a row) hosted by the Cambridge Art Association, The New England Collective VII Seventh Annual Juried Exhibition in SoWa and a major multimedia installation at the Ocean Alliance in Gloucester in association with Trident Gallery.
