Walter Scheirer started as an illustrator, painting entire creaturesas he saw them. Now he is focusing on the colors and patterns that thecreatures are composed of. This series is based on a collection ofinsects Walter photographed while journeying from the Catskills duringthe spring and summer of 2011 across the country to Seattle. Walterspaintings are done with mis-tinted latex house paint on salvagedhollow-core doors. With a background in architectural salvage, Walterthought this would be a good way to re-purpose things that mightotherwise be slighted for the landfill. We haven’t seen ”garbage”look this nice in a long time!
