Amy Swartz: insect sculptures with a twist

Toronto-based artist Amy Swartz’s Pests series began in 2011 and has expanded to include thousands of miniature sculptures that fuse insects and toys into one darkly fascinating collection. There’s something meticulously beautiful about the project, especially more monstrous creations like the werewolf butterfly, which the Swartz says ‘explores the idea of obsession — not only in the practice of art, but also in humanity’s perceived control over nature, life, and death’.
