"We Will Miss Them"

Size: 23" x 25" matted
Medium: Graphic on paper, ink and acrylic on panel, specimens pins
Year: 2023

After transferring the drawing to the panel, I realized how the drawing could work to reflect the painting and incorporated the two pieces into one. The specimen pins and the final custom framing are intended to give the effect of our shared existence as specimens in a finite space.

Our climate change is greatly affecting the insect population. We can't survive without them. As an artist, how does one address these issues in a way that viewers are able to look at and absorb?
