Warehouse find, 1980. The BESTIARY is a gallery of unreal beings. Each one seems to have a story, hinted at in the way they all appear to have been caught in the midst of a thought or action, or in the moment just before or after something has taken place. Members of some obscure species that came to be as a result of suits of armor mating with animals, the beasties have in common an extraordinary air of individual temperament and personality. They have the exaggerated, subtly mocking tone of caricature. Tinkelman has used unlikely combinations and a sense of distortion to give the beasties a grotesquely comic aliveness. Murray Tinkelman, 1980. Condition: Very Fine/As New.
