When a deer’s antlers fall they grow back, regenerate, and renew themselves. When humans fall, we go on a journey of self-discovery to grow, evolve and transform.

Under My Skin is a journey of works exploring intimacy, relationships, identity and behaviour and acknowledges the animalistic inheritance within the human condition. Karley uses the animal form to narrate the story with symbolic meaning to both the spirit animal and human behaviour. The works are not a creation of total imagination, but a projection of reality in an absurd form.

Feaver’s works exist in states of perpetual transformation, showing our ability to survive by adapting, mutating and adjusting to our current environment, much like nature does. Our lives can be complex, and to deal with trauma or difficult times we have to find a way to get through it. We need to adopt new thinking skills to grow and evolve until we come out the other side lighter and possibly enlightened. It’s this environmental and emotional flexibility that gives humans and animals the opportunity to adjust to changes during their own lifetime.

This new body of work is Feaver’s interpretation of experiences and behaviours that have happened over a period of her life. “The inspiration for this show is deeply personal, it’s about learning how to lean into your feelings so you experience them fully, deeply, and completely and then taking all of that energy, emotion and passion and transferring it into your work in order to let the story you are trying to tell initiate from the deepest parts of you.

For me, this show has served as an incredible outlet to put my life experiences thus far to use in a positive and therapeutic way. It’s an exploration of things I have witnessed, experienced and felt - loss, tragedy and a spiritual journey. It’s about pain, denial, trust, love and happiness. The topics, I think, all humans can relate to in some point in their lives because people only ever see what’s on the outside, and this is a look at what’s underneath”.

Karley’s works are simultaneously poetic and vexing, they express the ambivalence of life and take you on a profound journey of self-discovery by tapping in to your emotions.
