From ‘Bugs – the Print Portfolio’ 2000

Gallaccio’s treatment of the insect theme enters the extraordinary hidden world revealed through the microscope. The minute hairs on the spider’s leg, invisible to the human eye, become a mysterious and enchanting landscape.

The ten works which comprise 'Bugs – the Print Portfolio' were generously donated by the artists for publication by the Byam Shaw School of Art in London to use as a means of raising funds for post-graduate scholarships. The series was produced in 2000 in an edition of 90.
