The work of Los Angeles based artist Robert S. Connett portrays a dark and bizarre world densely populated with microscopic life. In his own words, “a collection of things that I find extremely appealing and engaging. I paint things that enchant me, and I paint because I enjoy seeing my imagination come to life.” His images present rare and overlooked creatures, from aquatic organisms like ciliates, shrimps, and crabs, to a myriad of butterflies and rainbow-colored grasshoppers, that he best describes as miracles of life. Each organism is rendered with excruciating detail, based on studies from his own collection of specimens and books of scientific illustrations, brought back into a vibrant living environment. Connett has created a new series of acrylic paintings that is currently on display at the Copro Gallery booth in the LA Art Show through January 31.
