About this title


In 1994, artist Alexis Rockman ventured to the dense jungles of Guyana, the site for this fantastic dreamscape of biological life. Rockman's world of nature - described by the artist as zoos in outer space; - is tempered by a penchant for the bizarre and the grotesque, but always based upon intimate observation of the environs. Monumental insects - ants, mites, bees, and beetles - vie on Rockman s vibrant canvasses with anteaters, exotic birds, piranhas, and iguanas. Guyana is accompanied by a lively, informative text by acclaimed novelist Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love.
