This picture, 'Invasive Species', is a version of a copperplate etching that I made; one of a series of ten etchings that formed a series called 'If You Lived Here You'd Be Home By Now'. The series was envisioned as a response to the fragility of human endeavour, the hubris of human ambition and the increasing likelihood of a disastrous outcome resulting from both. The title, Invasive Species, refers to our propensity to label anything that appears out-of-place or foreign as somehow intrinsically undesirable and potentially harmful; when in fact the most monstrous species is our own.

Goods are normally dispatched within 30 days. As per our experience shipping previous prints, due to the current global changes, some deliveries (especially international ones) can take as long as 8 weeks from the dispatch date and sometimes even longer.
