Whether finally escaping the confines of their chrysalis for their first flight or escaping colder climates on their annual migration to warmer shores, I wanted to convey a sense of both freedom and chaos whist ironically also creating an artwork with a sense of peace and calm.
The 3-dimensional aspect creates beautiful shadows which give the artwork a real sense of movement - a life of its own - and changes throughout the day in changing light situations. I have used gorgeous papers, many with sheens and glitters & multiple 24crt gold leaf butterflies which adds to this effect and gives it sparkle and preciousness.
Fully framed in a white box frame with Plexiglas XT 0A000 manufactured by Rohm. This material is the highest quality available and offers approximately 7 times more UV protection than glass and is shatter proof.
Even though this is part of a limited series, each piece is handmade and unique. I make this piece to order and will try to keep delivery within two weeks but sometimes this might take longer but will always keep you informed.. likewise if you need a piece very quickly sometimes that is possible too, just ask..
