Label Text:
Massachusetts native, Smith College alumna, installation artist and photographer Skoglund aims to make Surrealist images that "stay in touch with reality and at the same time try and interfere with it, like Magritte does." Here, she presents an apocalyptic "revenge of the squirrels" in which the semi-wild animals overrun a suburban home.
