“Magicicada” Paintings by Matt Kleberg
I’m bracing myself for the imminent arrival of the Magicicada. I’m referring of course to the Great Southern Brood of cicadas that are due to emerge any day now. Give me a flying monkey from Oz anyday over these high pitched, red-eyed monsters. Ecologist do argue their utility, however. I’m told that when their lifecycle ends and they die in piles around the base of trees, we can consider the mess of nutrient rich crunchy carcasses as huge bags of free fertilizer.
Artist Matt Kleberg understands the great outdoors. His large scale paintings definitely make me chirp.
I”m sure he’ll love to hear that! 🙂
Kleburg’s work speaks to my heart in soft whispers, leaving my soul tantalized and yearning for more…
if only our cicada were as pretty as Kleberg’s!
Matt plenary is one of my favorite contemporary artists. So glad to have happened upon this post and to see some of his latest work.
