Artist's description:

A commission piece (now sold) in the most glorious of palettes - turquoise, purples, genuine gold and copper leaf. I have released it because I can recreate this in new colours so please message me if you would love me to make you a unique piece like this. As each piece is hand created to order - this may take longer than the 2 weeks stipulated, but I will always advise.

The inspiration of this piece comes from imagining these amazing creature either 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..

Materials used:

Card, 24crt gold leaf on mount board.
