Philomena Powell continues her visual study of the beauty and complexity of the insect world. These new drawings combine her burgeoning skills as a pattern designer with her experience in entomological illustration to create images that explore complex biological processes.
In her astutely observed pen and ink drawings you will see a host of caterpillars hinting at the mysteries of metamorphosis or a spider’s web created from its own prey.
