Atglen, PA — Insects have captivated artists for centuries, as shown in their re- creations of them in gold, canvas, fabric, marble, wood, and other media. This book displays 39 contemporary artists’ insect-centric works, showing the extent to which insects fascinate twenty-first century artists and scientists. These American and international artists have many magical and discerning ways to approach their buggy subjects, which each artist explains in their own words. Nearly one million different described species of insects are known today. Now those colorful butterflies, iridescent beetles, little ladybugs, and lacy dragonflies can be with us permanently in many graceful arrangements and a variety of media!
Deeply committed to exhibiting works by established and emerging artists, E. Ashley Rooney, author of more than 50 books, believes that beauty is essential in our lives—even if it is as small as a dragonfly’s wings.
