Rob Wynne is represented with a group of ‘bead drawings’ of creatures in the natural world. The artist hand sews beads onto vellum, leaving the threads visible through the translucent veil. The creatures – a copper ant, a grasshopper, a green snake and butterflies, all appear animated with the luminous reflection of the glass beads. Wynne mines history, including the botanical world to create a universe celebrating the smallest creature with his trademark exuberance.
New York based, Wynne has been exhibiting nationally and internationally for more than 3 decades. His work is in numerous public and private collections including the Columbus Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art.
