Amy Swartz: Pests

For her series titled "Pests", Toronto-based artist Amy Swartz created a series of highly detailed and meticulously crafted miniature sculptures made by combining taxidermy insects and toy figurines. Her work explores the idea of obsession — not only in the practice of art, but also in humanity’s perceived control over nature, life, and death. As R.M. Vaughan wrote, “Swartz makes even the tiniest deaths meaningful (and, yes, morbidly funny).”
