This piece was a commission.
Inspired by Paul Smith's stripe design I was asked to recreate it as a Butterfly piece. We had discussions on how this could be best translated and decided the smallest butterflies would work best and I would source fantastic cards that would bring the colours to life.
i am in love with this piece! Well I love the colours first, and the sheens and glitters but also the abstract illusion of movement that seems to appear as you walk around it. I love how the piece initially appears abstract and then you are drawn into the piece when you realise it's composed of tiny butterflies...
It also includes my signature 24crt gold butterfly which glistens in the light and adds a preciousness to the piece.
The imagery sits on mount board and is fully framed 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.
This piece can be recreated - find me to discuss options and sizes. This piece takes more time and patience to create and is likely to take upwards of 4 weeks depending on work load... but I will keep you fully informed and clearly communicate timescales.
