Christopher Marley spent years in tropical regions where insects are flamboyant and profuse. His fascination prevailed over a phobia leading to lengthy study of entomology and to arduous excursions to where the gaudiest beetles dwell. His work with insects reflects his desire to impose order on a scuttling and swarming world. His minimalist arrangements of outrageous color invite inspection and wonder; preconceptions fade as we contemplate the creatures’ beauty. The ensembles are anything but organic, but the colors are natural, not enhanced or digitally altered. He asserts that an appreciation for these jewel beasts can slow the destruction of their habitat. Thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, our puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning images and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
