Peter D. Gerakaris in his art studio preparing for "Microcosms."

From inside his art studio in an old farmhouse he rents in Cornwall, Conn., Peter D. Gerakaris recently witnessed for the first time the power and poise of a bird that, for good reason, has been a recurring theme in his many works: the falcon, this one a peregrine falcon.

In a burst of brutal purpose, it swooped from a misty hilltop down to a field beside the Housatonic River, snatched a rodent with its talons and soared off into the vanishing point.

“It blew me away,” Gerakaris recalled.
