Luce Artist Biography

Jennifer Trask uses unlikely materials such as insect wings, rusted steel, and earth in place of precious gemstones. The artist presents natural specimens under glass and engraves the Latin species name or chemical notation on the back of each case, reminding us of the scientists and amateurs who created "curiosity cabinets" centuries ago.
