The ‘Insects on English Roses’ assemblages are constructed from found materials and mounted on wooden panels measuring 30 cm x 35 cm.

The wooden panels have been covered with ‘English Roses’ upholstery cloth. The cloth has been overpainted with coloured acrylic glazes.


The changes of scale and the disparate origins of materials found in ‘the world at large’ are combined to share the fragility of insect life forms in various stages of birth and decay.
