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. She experiments with different mediums and executes them according to her whim at the time. Sometimes they're pretty, sometimes scary, sometimes funny, sometimes political, and sometimes a fly is just a fly.

Dead Fly 35 - Fourth of July 2017
Dead Fly 35
Fourth of July 2017
acrylic on canvas 8"x 10"
Bright and early on this Fourth of July I felt a need to paint a political Dead Fly in what I see as the American landscape of the day. It was worked very quickly.
