"...and I serve the fairy queen to hang her orbs upon the green."

A giant moth is flitting though cobwebs, sweet peas and mustard flowers. Full of faery glamour, this luxuriously magical silk scarf references Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Titania, the Queen of the fairies implores her fairy attendants Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth and Mustardseed to be 'kind and courteous' to her Midsummer inamorato, Bottom the weaver.
This design began life as a large collagraph print. It was then inked and printed in dark shades of sooty rust, deep verdigris, malachite and sepia, to evoke a moonlit Midsummer night.
