Project Type:


In entomology, an instar is a stage, a continuation of the lifecycle before eclosion–the transforming emergence of an insect. It is a cycle reflecting nature’s essence and essential work, akin to re-animation, re-imagination, re-tailoring, and re-awakening. In Mimicry, instar is a reflection of what arrives and articulates from the frass and gall of most notions, guises, and impulses–the cracking of creation.

Mimicry is Colby Brinkman’s 2nd and final show at Dimension Gallery, and is resumed development of sculptures from his first, Hexapoda, which merged metal, carbon, and fire into creepily familiar and fantastic forms.
