Description
Working with reptiles, fish, crustaceans, birds, plants, and more, insect artist Christopher Marley has expanded his range of influence to sample the awe-inspiring diversity of plant and animal life on our planet. Each specimen is presented in its natural state, its colors true to life.

Marley’s work began with insects, combining a passion for entomology with a keen eye for design to produce kaleidoscopic bug mandalas and striking up-close-and-personal insect portraits. Now, by working with institutions and individuals that are dedicated to animal husbandry, he is able to make superb use of fish, reptiles, birds, and other organisms that die of natural or incidental causes in captivity, ensuring that no vertebrates are ever killed for his art.

Devoid of any creepy-crawliness or wriggly-slitheriness, Marley’s arrangements transform jewel-like arthropods, knobbly urchins, stately crustaceans, swirling sea stars, brilliant fish, and more into stunning works of art. More of Marley's art is featured in Pheromone (Pomegranate, 2008).
