Chicago artist Ann Wiens combines the practice of scientific illustration with the painterly style of Op Art. In five paintings commissioned for the Chicago Center for Green Technology, Wiens portrays various animals native to the Midwest against backdrops of patterns influenced by the architecture of the building. For example, a Black Swallowtail caterpillar is superimposed against the grid of a photovoltaic (or solar) panel. The animals depicted in the smaller paintings represent wildlife indicative of the four seasons.
