Dave Gordon, Iridiscent Blue Scarab
- 10" by 8"
About the Artist
From a review of my exhibition ‘Specimen Days’ at the downtown Window Gallery by Ulrike Bender - “Gordon...has mounted his beetles and scarabs on canvas - like specimens - and augmented them with mug shots of birds. The result, reminiscent of a display case of fantastical creatures, also hints at a disturbing reality. Our biodiversity is shrinking worldwide, from the woodlands of Ontario to the tropics and beyond.”
