The Empire

3,500.00

Amidst the chaos of floating blank beta fish and cicadas, you will see the cicada wasp taking down her prey. This wasp releases a pheramone that allows her to match the scent of her prey undetected. Her bodily structure is an example of evolved mimicry as well. I am fascinated by these adaptations. This piece is laborious, layered, and has a smoky finish to the last layer, suggesting an underwater scene all the more. 

Oil, resin, cicadas, Cicada Killer Wasp, mylar, lace, mixed media on panel.
