Burt's Bugs

View All Collections

One day in the spring of 2011 my brother Burt and I were sitting in my studio on my kibbutz with all ten of my Spiral Butterflies spread out before us. We were discussing the butterflies. Then he stated: You know there are more species of beetles in the world than butterflies! With that short statement he sent me off on my quest for my Spiral Beetles. In my brother's honor I call them Burts Bugs. I have noticed that each beetle contains all the secrets and beauty of nature. They are part of the Cosmos like all living creatures. Call it Elohim, Holy Spirit, Allah. Call it whatever you wish. The spiral represents the connection of each bug to the Universe. Here is the poem I wrote that goes with Burts Bugs: "I linger in the blank spaces; between the pragmatic and the prismatic, between the tarnished picture frame and it's faded photograph, between the stew brewing in the kitchen and the steam beading down the window pane, between the cool silent dessert night and the snap of the June Bug."
