Our Featured Member Artist is the "fly guy" also known as Sharden Killmore also known as Steven Barnes. His show, "...fly on the wall" is up on the wall! Steven works with dead flies as a medium and his work really sets him apart from any other artist. His other medium is oil and this collection is all in black and white oil with flies carefully arranged to create most of the main subjects in his work. The metallic bodies of the flies give it such a beautiful pearlescent effect that you have to see it to believe it. read more >
