Tyler Thrasher won’t mind if you call his art macabre. In fact, he considers it fair and accurate.

The Tulsa, Oklahoma, native, who incorporates his love of chemistry into his unique creations, discusses his work and its inspirations in an illustrated presentation. Thrasher practices what he calls a type of alchemy, growing colorful crystals on the remains of bugs, skulls, and various flora. His drawings, photos, and crystalized pieces are featured in the Library exhibit Noble Synthesis.

The exhibit, the latest in a series curated by Kansas City Art Institute students, runs through September 30, and is underwritten by the Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts and Pam and Gary Gradinger.
