Peter Doig’s etching, Kings Cross Mosquito,
is an image of night-time menace. Under the cover of darkness, a mosquito perches on a hairy section of exposed skin. The mosquito’s belly is a deep blood red, suggesting that it has already gorged on the available flesh. Doig’s work is one of a portfolio of ten prints collectively entitled Bugs. The portfolio was published by the Byam Shaw School of Art in London.
