Alien Entomology: Scarlet Isherwood
This show looks at beings of an another world through organic matters of our own planet. Scarlet has created artworks using unusual insects that have been carefully deconstructed and reassembled to look more alien to the viewer, changing the perspective we have of both the occupants of our world and the next. This exhibition looks at colour, composition and pattern. The viewer is invited to look at insects on the same level as extra terrestrial life forms as well as examining the relationship we have with them. This is a solo show, exhibiting the artworks of Scarlet Isherwood.
Scarlet raises many of the insects she uses in her work herself to ensure the they live the best possible life and other insects are purchased from conservation centres and sellers that are as cruelty free as possible.
Scarlet Isherwood is an artist based in Kent who works with a range of materials including traditional painting and sculpture.
