Exquisite Creatures: The Insect Art of Christopher Marley 2018 Wall Calendar
Naturally translucent, iridescent, or bold, the insects in Christopher Marley’s careful compositions remind us that some of the most underappreciated creatures in the animal kingdom are among its most beautiful.
In separating these insects from their natural context—remote jungles and tropical forests Marley has spent years exploring—he aims to inspire new appreciation and, in turn, help slow habitat destruction. Leading environmentalists and entomologists agree that insect collecting can aid preservation by offering an economic incentive to preserve the environments in which they thrive.
His work highlights the striking symmetry in nature while still emphasizing the unique nature of each creature. The presentation is minimalist but his subjects are rarely understated, and their colors are true to life. More of Marley’s exquisite creatures are featured in the book Pheromone
