The National Trust is hosting The Theatre of Insects exhibition by Jo Whaley.

Taking place at the Fox Talbot Museum, Lacock, this is Jo Whaley's first UK exhibition. It is full of her striking images of insects, juxtaposed with painted backgrounds and objects which emphasises the jewel-like colours, delicate structures and ornamental beauty of nature.

Some of the insects are live, some are mounted and she picks a background for them which echoes their form, sometimes a painting, occasionally a painted object or even an old photograph.

Jo Whaley is well known in America for her photographs– she is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and has had many successful exhibitions, although this is the first time her work has come to the UK. Talking about her work, Jo has said “As an artist I find great aesthetic lessons in their strategies of mimicry, camouflage, and metamorphosis. Delightfully distracted, I am caught in the butterfly net of their visual forms and held absolutely mesmerized with wonder.”

The exhibition opens on 29 September 2012 and will run until late March 2013. The admission price includes access to Lacock Abbey and grounds, and is £10.70 for adults and £5.30 for children.
