Joseph Scheer’s Moths: Flight, Light and Desire

Joseph Scheer. Manduca rustica (sphinx), 2006

August 17, 2006 – October 8, 2006

Joseph Scheer’s richly saturated images and large-scale prints present moths as mysteriously beautiful and striking. The artist creates an immersive environment that invites viewers to look at these nocturnal creatures in a different light. The examples in this exhibition were collected during the moonless nights of late summer 2004 and 2005, and represent an astonishing range of moths, both common and rare.
