INSPIRED BY INSECTS:
Bugs in Contemporary Art
E. Ashley Rooney, Foreword by Joan Danziger,
Introduction by Barrett Anthony Klein
• 39 contemporary artists from around the globe share their
insect-inspired creations
• A variety of media including canvas, paper, fabric, marble, metal,
and wood is represented
• The process of metamorphosis has long inspired artists to interpret
the most ubiquitous of animals
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. Some 1million different kinds 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. AshleyRooney
, 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.
