Paul’s artwork for ROCLA – Bugs on Lampposts

Paul Gulati has been commission to forge a variety of indigenous bugs from mild steel, some will have solid copper integrated with the steel. On ageing this will turn to a beautiful Verdigris green. Feedback from residents together with Paul’s research into the local nature has provided a variety of species that you will see adorning the lampposts as you walk around Redhouse Park. Once the bugs are installed you will be able to download a Bug Spotter Sheet to see how many bugs you can identify.
