I’ll be donating the profits from the remaining limited edition print sales of my piece ‘New World Devolution’ to the Invertebrate conservation society Buglife. Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. They’re actively working to save some of the rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
I painted New World Devolution last summer , inspired by a museum visit and understanding more about extinction of certain insect species throughout history. I’m sure you’re aware of the recent reports about the alarming decline in insect species around the world. To the extent where some of our most recognisable invertebrates could be extinct within decades.
I know this is a just a drop in the ocean but all the little things help the little things !
