Those of us of a certain age may remember the iconic BBC One children's television series Animal Magic that was transmitted from 1964 to 1983. If so, you must remember the theme tune…listen to it here:
Who can forget Johnny Morris the eccentric presenter was like a kindly uncle figure to children and parents throughout the UK. His charismatic style and genuine fondness for animals made the show an instant hit. The show combined jovial voice-overs applied to various animals from Bristol Zoo. This was termed an ‘anthropomorphic’ style, which when combined with educational features, became a popular feature of children’s after school television. Dottie the ring-tailed lemur appeared as a regular guest for eight years in the 1970s.
Morris' co-presenters over the years were: Gerald Durrell, Tony Soper, Keith Shackleton, Roger Tabor, Sheila Young, David Taylor and Terry Nutkins. When Terry Nutkins joined the programme in the early 1980s, producers updated it, using new video effects. This allowed them to do such things as "shrink" the presenters to allow them to see life from an ant's or other small bug’s point of view.
Television is an intrinsic part of modern culture and the arts. Animals have always featured in myriad of artistic forms and expression. However, I have never seen bugs or insects expressed as bug art or creative wall art.
Jennifer Angus, is currently one of the featured artists exhibiting at the Renwick Gallery housed within the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Jennifer has, “…created an installation out of something remarkable and unexpected. Her wall art — flowing in decorative patterns, from geometric to a skull — offers a fascinating realization upon closer inspection: It's made of bugs.”
One can use a number of phrases that describe this funky wall art. Is it 3D wall art, modern wall art, contemporary wall art, unusual wall art, abstract wall art, bug art, decorative wall art, creative wall art, nature wall art or insect wall art? Of course it is a combination of all these descriptions...
