Artist's description:

From the series “Please do not kill butterflies”, pins, oil and pencil on paper (Canson paper for oil painting, 290 g/mq), mounted on a wood panel. 28 x 50 cm, 2016.

Please, all these dead animals ... Of course, not everyone of us can or want become vegetarian. Sure, in some cases, maybe, the medical experimentation needs them to get results. But we really have to kill them for our frivolous activities? ... Is it necessary to have so many pink pigs die in front of a camera? Do we really need to dissect sharks in formaldehyde, to starve stray dogs tied to a chain in the corner of a gallery, or to make innocent ants go crazy in twisted tubes of plexiglass?
To make these drawings, no butterfly was killed.

Note, this particular butterfly was created starting with a structure based on the numerical series of Fibonacci, that seems to be the core of a lot of natural structures.

Materials used:

pins, oil

Fibonacci moth (2016)
