"Moths are my favourite insects and summer becomes a real burden because I am always rescuing them from bathwater or guiding them away from bright and harmful lights. I keep dead moths so as to enjoy their beauty for as long as possible, and find the complex beauty of the patterns and textures irresistible. The 'eyes', which are a feature of some species' markings, remind me of Venetian Carnival masks. The three Mothmasks shown here are a playful way of commemorating specimens I have collected in combination with the notions of disguise and disclosure. Two of them hide the face, and in the third, a face is revealed in close up, as he scrutinises wings through a magnifying glass." Judith Mason
