Artist's description:

“Did you know that the iconic monarch butterfly weighing less than a penny, makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across continents.”

I wanted to express this migration with movement and yet precision. The circle design or ‘ripple’ effect brings this to life. I have used gorgeous papers, many with sheens and glitters & my signature 24crt gold leaf butterfly which adds to this effect and gives it sparkle.

The 3-dimensional aspect creates beautiful shadows which give the artwork a life of its own and changes throughout the day in changing light situations.

Hand built wooden box frame with PLEXIGLAS® XT 0A000 (20070) manufactured by Rohm. This material is the highest quality available and offers approximately 7 times more UV protection than glass and is shatterproof.

Please note: This piece was created for a commission but I am happy to recreate a similar version if ordered. Please be aware that this piece takes me a while to make but i will be very clear on timescales if you message me or buy this.

Materials used:

Card, 24crt gold leaf on 200gsm fine art paper.

Marvellous Migration
