Recent work by Michael Crespo reveals birds and animals in their nocturnal settings. The moonlight illuminates the span of the owl's wings over Chicago; it is the backdrop upon which a squid is highlighted; it shines upon a flock of wings. Mystery is evoked by the sparse settings and scarceness of props. Set against inky backgrounds, the creatures seem to impart a sort of wisdom.
