Jar Schepers with Insect Inspired Sculpture
Photo: Ryann Lynn
has a feature on Ceramics Professor and Sculptor, Jar Schepers. Schepers incorporates images from nature to create “Insectoid” sculptures. The sculpture in the photo contains recognizable insect parts including orthopteran jumping legs complete with realistic spines, spurs and claws. Schepers wants his work to be memorable and imposing. He makes large sculptures because small insects are not very imposing.
If you blow up the scale of any insect it’s just instantly horrifying.
