Moths and Bell Jar

Invalid Displayed Gallery

This is my current piece just completed. I am exploring a few different colour variations but the one depicted is an edition of 40.

I have used mostly wood engraving print techniques, but also some more spontaneous processes such as mono and stencil.

The bell jar is an old Victorian one found in a Biology lab. It alludes towards a scientific neutrality, but of course is loaded with connotations and it’s own specific character.

The moths have a slight malevolent feel. Although frozen you can still imagine their papery wings hitting the bell jar.
