Beetles (order Coleoptera) and true bugs (Hemiptera)
Christopher Marley’s insect art reflects his desire to impose order on a scuttling, clicking, and swarming world. His minimalist arrangements of outrageous color invite inspection and wonder; preconceptions fade as we contemplate these creatures’ breathtaking beauty. Although the ensembles are meticulously composed, the colors are natural and not enhanced or digitally altered in any way.
Beetles (order Coleoptera) and true bugs (Hemiptera) are found all over the world. As Mosaic intimates, the colors, shapes, and “finishes” of the hundreds of thousands of beetle and bug species are as endlessly diverse as the fascination they afford.
