OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2017, 7–9PM
Miami-based artist Franky Cruz is a polymath whose artistic practice borrows from a diversity of interdisciplinary media. For his installation in Locust Projects’ Project Room, Cruz will don the hat of entomologist, cultivating butterflies from egg to chrysalis in an enclosed, vegetal environment he will construct in the back project space. As the butterflies emerge from their chrysalis, the umber and ochre secretions they release will absorb onto watercolor paper laid beneath. The butterflies, then released outdoors, will leave a trace of themselves across this unorthodox watercolor process.
