The fabulous red-eyed cicada, portrayed in an art quilt

Out of stock


I wanted to depict the fantastic red eyes of the cicada, and also indicate in a visual way the loud sound that it makes. I live in an area that experiences major brood events, such as the 17 year cycle, when millions of the insect emerge from the ground, make a lot of noise, mate, and die. The title references the incredibly loud call they make.

The background fabric is a commercial print, and the pattern seems to almost vibrate visually. The wings are made of stitched organza, and extend fully – they are folded underneath in this view.

size = 12 x 12 inches, mounted on stretched canvas
