“Nature and its respective curiosities” is what Thrasher said audiences can expect from this exhibit.

 

“My work has always spoken of and about the natural elements and microscopic ones that surround each and every one of us, the tendencies for humans to trace and follow curious and natural callings, and most importantly, the importance of curiosity and experimentation,” continued Thrasher.

 

Thrasher is a multimedia artist based in Tulsa, Okla. He includes “crystallized” natural pieces, photography, drawings and music.
