Bugs, Beetles & Other Insects
In the summer of 2006 I presented an exhibition of my prints in Axis Ballymun, Dublin, Ireland. Bugs, Beetles & Other Insects explores my curiosity and fascination with these beautiful and complex creatues that go about their business mostly unnoticed by the rest of us.
Moving beyond beliefs that bugs, beetles and insects are small, horrible and ugly, the prints and drawings in this exhibition present a visual feast of colour and character with a light and humourous touch.
Whatever their environment they are built to survive: yet their survival goes beyond their physical strength, mimicry and camoflage. Entomology indicates that social interaction, loyalty and community are even more important.
