Artist's description:

Here we have a 2 colour hand-pulled screenprint. The two colours used are a Duck Egg blue and a warm plum purple.

This art work was inspired by the incredibled story of the Peppered Moth and their adaptablity to our ever changing environments.

The peppered moth has undergone two dramatic changes to in appearance due to the impact we have our their environment. As pollution levels grew the peppered moth was genetically forced to darken the colouring of their wings to pure black to blend in with the darkening on tree bark. Since our living standards becoming increasing eco friendly and environmentally award the worlds pollution levels have dramatically dropped and we are finally starting to see the peppered moths wings return to their stunning specled and peppered colouring.

This print is about their resiliance and the cycle that their species went through.
