Creature Features: 25 Animals Explain Why They Look the Way They Do

Let's face it. Even as babies, we humans pay close attention to faces. Observing another person's features and expressions tells us whether they are happy, angry, excited, or sad. And when we look at an animal, it's hard not to imagine that its face is communicating human feelings. This isn't true, of course. Squinty eyes, an upturned mouth, or another odd expression is probably there because, in some way, it helps that animal survive. Packed with many cool facts and visuals on where certain animals live and what they eat, this book captures twenty-five humorous— and very true — explanations of why animals look the way they do in order to exist in this world.

Robin Page

[under construction]

Robin Page (born 1932) is a painter. He was one of the early members of the Fluxus art movement.

Biography

Page was born in England in 1932. His father, Peter Carter-Page, was a humorist and cartoonist who worked as an animator at the Disney studios in Hollywood in the 1930’s. The family moved to Canada where the young Page lived until the age of 27. Page moved back to Europe in 1959 and quickly found himself in the company of the international network of Fluxus artists, such as Robert Filliou, Dieter Roth, Dorothy Iononi, Daniel Spoerri, Ben Vautier, et al . His artwork embraced the sentiments of the movement. Namely, it’s ‘anti-art’ stance, inherited from the Dadaists, and its emphasis on the event as an artwork (called a Happening or an Action Event). Page performed many Happenings, including one titled "Guitar", which involved him in kicking his guitar with the help of an audience along the Mall for the ICA’s Misfits concert. [(Marlee Robinson, 1988, Exhibition Catalogue).] Other events involved Page making a chalk portrait drawing of Joseph Beuys, complete with begging bowl, on the pavement in front of the National Gallery. [(Action Art, J. Gray, ISBN 0-313-28916-6)]

By 1970, Page left the Fluxus movement and moved to Germany. He began to develop his own brand of cutting edge art and was one of the first artists to employ humour as a means of overtly challenging notions of ‘good taste’ in the art world. His "Hey Wildon" paintings stand as one of Page’s alter-ego puppets that mocked and commented on ‘art’ while at the same time embodied the traditional techniques of painting. Page poses the question “ Hey, Whildon, why has humour never replaced seriousness as the most respectable cultural attitude?” to which Whildon replies “Because people can’t fake it!”

Page’s artwork continued to develop an overtly biting and satirical commentary on cultural pretensions. By 1987 he had "died and gone to Bluebeard" which involved him in dying his beard blue and producing a series of paintings that appropriate elements from poster and propaganda art. His Bluebeard AMuseum further places Page at the forefront of contemporary art; by both mocking the notion of the Institution and placing himself at the centre of his art ‘collection’, Page challenges the very basis upon which power is assigned to private and state run and cultural organisations. One notable example is the painting "Freedom is a Burning Brush" which features the artist posing as the Statue of Liberty holding a paintbrush as a torch.
