This project stems from my interest in insects. My aim is to depict the insects as homosexual creatures. Using the surface of some of my own circular porcelain dishes as the background, I have fashioned images of insects mating. These works simulate Petri dishes used by scientists to study various organisms, some so small as to require a microscope in order to visualize them. The larger circles into which the smaller individual circular dishes are arranged represent the entire population of homosexual insects.
