Framed etching from Bugs portfolio, published by the Byam Shaw School of Art in London in 2000

 

In Fiona Banner’s etchingSwarm, an amorphous cloud of impenetrable blackness hovers against a white background. It is like a black hole teeming with insects. The print eloquently conveys the unquantifiable and unbounded nature of the insect realm. Banner’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.
