With thoughts of summer flora and graceful butterflies swirling in my head, I am reminded of the glorious work of Joseph Scheer…

Having made digital scans of more than 1,200 species, artist Joseph Scheer sees moths as “beautiful night creatures that are more diverse than butterflies”…his oversize limited edition prints, ranging in size from 34-by-46-inch to 60-by-96-inch, transform these magical micro creatures into macro works of art…intricate patterns and sublime colors command attention….nature at her best…and to think, so much of this beauty is just outside our doorstep…

The images in today’s post are a sampling of Scheer’s Spring 2009 exhibit from Bergdorf Goodman titled “life within awareness” …current works are available through Ruby Beets in Sag Harbor, NY
