Nature Composed: The Insect Artistry of Jennifer Angus
By: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum on June 16th
April 12 – June 15, 2014
Elaborate patterns of meticulously pinned insects comprise a site-specific installation at the Museum. This artwork by UW-Madison professor and artist Jennifer Angus suggests Victorian designs and textiles and highlights environmental issues such as rainforest deforestation and habitat loss. Angus’ insect arrays point out the intrinsic beauty of lacy-winged cicadas and iridescent beetles and encourage viewers to consider these creatures in a new way.
