Infestation is comprised of 18 silverpoint drawings of mounted insects from my own collection and from specimens at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and the CU Boulder Zoological Collection. I’ve been devoted to making a few of these drawings each week for over a year, of which I’ve picked a handful of the best or most interesting examples for this show. Silverpoint is a very old way of making drawings that uses soft metal tools to mark on specially-coated papers.
