Crystal Floyd Phronemophilia
Mixed Media, Found Objects, 32 x 17 x 1.5 inches
Crystal Floyd loves, lives, and breathes the natural world and all of its peculiar wonders. For years, she has collected and catalogued thousands of unique specimens that have become the very medium of her artistic expression.
Floyd states: “ My work explores themes of nature, storytelling, and adaptive reuse, transforming collected ephemera and manipulated materials into naturalistic and nostalgic vignettes. Drawing inspiration from the environment and science, I employ preserved insects, taxonomic items, natural artifacts, miniatures and artificial objects to activate magical narratives.”
