Gregory Euclide (Hi-Fructose Vol. 14) is a scavenger. The artist sources a wide variety of natural and reclaimed materials — from moss and hair to styrofoam and plastic bags — for his miniature sculptures. Each of Euclide’s pieces is a tiny oasis with an artfully laid out ecosystem that brims with lush flora. The artist recently created a new installation, Islands, for the upcoming group show “Cartographer’s Delite” at Hellion Gallery in Portland, OR. When viewed together, the individual islands invite the eye to bounce from one mass to the next to investigate these microcosms. Take a look at a sneak peek of Gregory Euclide’s new work below and check out “Cartographer’s Delite” on November 7.
