The world of insects is not only intriguing but sublime – existing within an environment, practically invisible and yet a constant presence, an alien-like beauty inspiring dread and wonder. The ecology of the insect world mirrors our own, on a minute as well as an infinite scale. Using bronze to construct this work memorialises, celebrates and gives a sense of permanency to the transient, while the iconic Corinthian column references ideals of classicism. This work is a question of culture versus environment. What will be the end play of these two momentous, yet seemingly conflicting, realities?
