Mittens and Moth Eggs by Kathy Prendergast

Mittens and Moth Eggs by Kathy Prendergast

Prendergast’s exploration of the ‘Bugs’ theme is represented obliquely, not by an image of an insect but by a pair of woollen children’s mittens partially disintegrated by an infestation of moth larvae.

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.
