Artist's description:

This is an multi print artwork made from 2 collagraph prints onto a brown paper luggage tags one of which has been painted with gold acrylic paint before printing. These are topped with a linocut print of a butterfly onto brown paper painted with gold acrylic paint and the butterfly printed in black ink to define the butterfly details. These prints are arranged into a collage, layered up to create a 3 dimensional artwork. The butterfly is mounted with its wings slightly raised mimicking nature. These are all printed from handmade printing blocks and hand printed, this is a unique artwork and not part of an edition.

I have always loved butterflies and remember being fascinated by the collections of them which featured in the old musty museums in the school trips of my childhood. Those old framed up examples of Victorian collectors passions, each beautiful and so fragile. The butterfly is so much a symbol of beauty and the tenuous nature of life.
