Moths with clothing labels & pins

I have been making artwork with new and used clothing labels for some 20 years.  It came to my attention that the structure, colour and texture of a label is very similar to that of a fluffy moth. Often strikingly coloured and patterned, and sometimes dull and camouflaged. The reverse of a woven label is an artwork in itself with threads of textured colour reflecting each branded logo. Metallic moth colours can also be matched to silk printed clothing and care labels. From the 165,000 species of Lepidoptera I have selected six insects for reproduction. 

 Collection of six moths will be available to purchase at The Makers, 47 Church Street, Ashbourne DE6 1AE from mid September, or contact me direct, 30 x 30 cm box framed in white.
