Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

The ferocious and beautiful Greenhead Fly is revealed as the red-robed and highly cultured predator that lives a rich and complex life both above and below the salt marsh.The Greenhead's days are filled with as much heat, light, violence and appetite as any being on earth. All other life exists for their pleasure alone. The advent of clouds or darkness reveals another dimension of their remarkable lives that then unfolds below ground. In a narrative cycle of over 50 renaissance influenced paintings, as well as an accompanying text, the extraorindary life cycle of the Greenhead is chronicled. The book contains over 75 color reproductions printed on high quality paper. It was published in association with a highly acclaimed exhibition at the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester, Massachusetts June-Oct, 2008.

About the Author:

Painter and author Sam Holdsworth has spent every summer of the past three decades surrounded by the salt marshes of West Gloucester, Mass. in close contact with the Greenheads. Through this contact he has observed that in their allotted four weeks on earth rather than a life assumed to be "nasty, brutish and short", Greenheads live a rich, regal and nuanced life as befits their status as Lords of the Marsh. At great personal risk he has been chronicling his groundbreaking observations of Greenhead culture, sexuality and appetite since 1996.
