Moths and Habitats in Mezzotint
“We have done enormous damage to those we share the Earth with. The work of the artist is to pay attention – to refuse not to notice.” Sarah Gillespie
British printmaker Sarah Gillespie was drawn to moths because they’re “overlooked and under-loved”. Then she found out they are in catastrophic decline: 50-60 species have become extinct in the past 80 years. Their plight has become an obsession. Her concerns are entwined with the threat to natural habitats. In particular the watery world of Slapton Ley, near her home in Devon, where the sea threatens to encroach on a unique freshwater ecosystem.
