Swarm by Fiona Banner

Swarm by Fiona Banner

 

In this etching Banner’s stark, black shape evokes the particular world and behaviour of communal insects which swarm together either on the ground or in the air. The pulsating, amorphous shape is both intriguing and sinister.

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.
