The Dead Fly Project is a series of one hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, whatever - depicting a dead fly - same fly - over and over again - but different each time by Beverley Conrad.

Sometimes they're pretty, sometimes scary, sometimes funny, sometimes political, and sometimes a fly is just a fly.
