Wesley Fleming

I know I did a glassworks post recently, but I’m beginning to realize that a number of exceptional artists use this medium. Take Wesley Fleming, for example.

The detailed realism is exquisite.

From the artist statement: With some of my glass beetles for example, I try to capture and mimic an actual species with intricate detail on the tiny limbs and thorax. While in other pieces, I attempt to bring into being a creature from an inner reality or a dream. In some cases I merge the fantastical with the real through choice of color palette or by referencing familiar images in a mythical work.

Some of his subject matter is unconventional.

The colors and patterns here are amazing (of course I had to include the cephalopod…I really want this little guy!).

The whole gallery is wonderful.
