About the Exhibit
Throughout history, insects have inspired many artists. With their numerous habitats, behaviors, and forms, insects are logical candidates for artistic expression. In Insectology, Heather Boaz, Rebecca Clark, Jennifer Coster, Craig Dennis, Susan Eder, Marian April Glebes, Talia Greene, Mike Libby, Renée Rendine, and Lola Robinsky study the insect world and translate their observations into visual expressions of human behavior, experience, and existence. Whether incorporating insects directly by using body parts, entire dead specimens, or live participants, or indirectly by translating investigations into drawings and photographs, each artist's work piques our curiosity and challenges our perceptions.
