Christopher Marley

Christopher Marley

Christopher Marley did not always have the love for insects he now possesses. Forced to confront his fears as he traveled the globe, he developed a great appreciation and respect for his specimens. The experience of actually handling the specimens and using them as a medium of design opened a Pandora’s box for him. Years of study in Entomology followed, then excursions to ridiculously remote locales to collect and observe selected species in their own habitats. As his fascination with insects was inspired by a desperation to avoid them, the presentation is antiseptic. Minimalist to escape the claustrophobia that almost universally accompanies one’s interactions with arthropods. Perfectly symmetrical so that the insects themselves, and the designs they comprise evoke feelings of structure, mechanics and form rather than slithering and clicking.
