Neotibicen tibicen is an annual cicada, also called the swamp cicada or morning cicada. Lending their familiar buzzing to the summer air, they are an iconic seasonal marker. Both beautiful and intriguing, I marvel at how such a small insect can produce such a huge sound. I wanted to create a painting in which the visual scale matched the size of that sound, and in that process, I found worlds within words of amazing color, intertwined shapes and breathtaking design, all in this seemingly simple creature.
