Natural Creativity: Sex and Trickery Free

About

Why is the natural world so colourful and varied? This exhibition of drawings by Clara Lacy looks at the myriad of shapes, sizes and behavioural tactics some animals have evolved in order to survive, reproduce and pass on their genes.

It is commonly assumed that animals are born either male or female then reproduce as adults, but things can get much more interesting. Some species change sex over their lifetime, become a grandmother before giving birth, or trick others into thinking they belong to the opposite sex.

Clara Lacy is the Artist in Residence in the Mank Lab at University College London’s Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment. Working closely with the scientists based there, Lacy’s illustrations bring to life their research into the amazing variety of sexual and genetic survival strategies in the animal kingdom.
