Artful Evolution showcases beautiful examples of coevolution and mutualism between Yukon insects and plants.

Artful Evolution exhibition launch -- Interview with CBC radio

 

In 2014 Misha travelled to Kew Gardens and the Royal Society of London, UK, to look at original illustrated plates and hand-carved woodblocks from 1650 - 1950.

Misha created pieces of yukon plants that evoke the style of images appearing in the scientific literature of the day. The works embody a sense of wonder and discovery and, like all publications in the history of science, illustrate better what was not known about the natural world than what was.

Many thanks to three amazing photographers: David HornerBill Bouton and Aniruddha Dhamorikar for providing reference photos in the development of the exhibition.

You can purchase black and white or hand-coloured prints by contacting Misha. All prints have been hand signed.
