Artist Christopher Marley creates a powerful dialogue between Art and Nature

Artist, naturalist and New York Times bestselling author Christopher Marley reveals the often-overlooked beauty in nature through his three-dimensional work with animal, mineral and plant specimens. This exhibition is the culmination of two decades of his work.

Marley’s immersive 20,000 square foot exhibit, opening to the public on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, will be the largest exhibition throughout Art Week Miami. The largest exhibition and sale of its kind ever assembled, Christopher Marley will showcase over 400 original works, many of which will be unveiled for the first time. The exhibition Museum and Press Preview to meet the artist will be from 5 to 7 pm on December 5, 2017, at the Gallery of Amazing Things (481 South Federal Highway, Dania Beach, FL 33004). There will also be a book signing on December 6th from 12 to 3 PM.

Tapping the natural world as his medium, Marley’s revolutionary work includes rare elements of nature—animal, vegetable and mineral. All of the organisms used in his work are either reclaimed (vertebrates) or sustainably harvested (invertebrates).

Art’s purpose is to heighten our aesthetic sensibilities, to sharpen our ability to experience beauty, to empathize with those life systems we come into contact with, to derive pleasure or stimulation from our interaction with arranged elements, in whole or in part.

The Gallery of Amazing Things and the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts (WMODA) in Greater Fort Lauderdale will host the exhibition and sale of works through March 31, 2018.
