BLURB

A mosquito's corpse is pictured in stasis, suspended with the frame, as though it has fallen or flailed against some invisible surface, perhaps ensnared in a drop of ambergris or resin. Psychological associations with illness, malaria, skin infection and insomniac nights clash with environmental necessity: two predominant strata of fear conflict and combine in this odd and disempowered portrait of anatomy. This still life of a fallen vampirical nuisance narrates our unconscious fears towards the most normal of things and a manner by which we elect iconography due to prejudice rather than reason.
