EXHIBITION "VOLUME OF INSECTS" - PETER POHL

The Fritzi Gallery
June 3rd - July 3rd 2022


Nature is often associated with peace and quiet. However, nature is restless and noisy. It is full of life both in small and in large ratio. And while large beasts are rare but easy to spot, tiny creatures are almost impreceptible, and therefore very present.  Insects - the most numerous and diverse group of animals on Earth. Useful and (sometimes) harmful, they are an indispensable part of nature. Noisy crickets, annoying mosquitoes, nasty wasps, dangerous ticks and many other small animals hide into all corners of nature and,occasionally, appear to/on man. As for Peter Pohl, unlike  most people, insects provoke curiosity and encourage inspiration.
