I have great affection for these, people, but they just won't stand up on their own. I decided to give them little rods and poles so they could stay standing and so you could see some of their nice clothes. And sometimes, see right through their clothes - the plastic things. Those were milk jugs. Everyone is talking about plastic, how bad it is. And how it will never go away. I thought I could make it be clothes. I love the way you can see through them, but not exactly. Not explicitly. So if the person only has legs and a head, and he's wearing his clothes, you can kind of imagine there's some more to him. It's funny how people are the animals who have to wear the clothes.

And what is Witchama-Milkee, you ask? It’s a where. A place. And I’m not exactly sure... I've only been to the outskirts. That's usually where you find the stuff the people who live there throw away. Like their milk jugs.

A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Aggie Zed moved to Richmond, Virginia after graduating from the University of South Carolina.  She has exhibited her work nationally in solo and group exhibitions. Her solo show, Keeper's Keep, traveled to museums and galleries in the Southeast including the Taubman Museum in Roanoke, Virginia as well as the Visual Arts Center Richmond. Zed's drawings and paintings are informed by a lifelong celebration of the beauty and strangeness of dreams posed against the absurdity and poignancy of supposedly rational human activity. She currently lives and works in Gordonsville, Virginia.
