With a Match


The delicate nature of butterflies, dragonflies, and beetles is captured eloquently with Kyle Bean’s matchstick sculptures of the insects. Bean’s intricate replicas of the creatures show off his precise hand, as they sit suspended, constructed entirely of tiny matchstick pieces glued together. Bean is a master of building incredible likenesses from a series of small, unexpected parts – like his chicken made from broken egg shells, and amazing portraits from pencil shavings.
