Syntomeida epilais: Macula

Macula1

Macula (Latin for “Spot”) is a Polka Dot Wasp Moth, a species native to the Caribbean. The tip of the moth’s abdomen is bright red, and looks like a dangerous wasp, but in fact is harmless. The caterpillars are orange with long black hairs and also look dangerous, but do not inflict any harm.

Macula is among eighteen of my latest found object assemblages, which will be on display and (most) for sale at the Oliver Center for the Arts July 28 – September 8, 2017 as part of a group exhibition, “Bugs, Birds and Beasts.”

Cold assembly: antique cans, wood potato masher, brass drawer pulls, spatulas, fabric, recycled jewelry, machine parts, peacock feathers, paint.

Dimensions: 15”x10”x15”

$425   S O L D
