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.
