"Utopia" Limited Edition Morpho Print hand finished with 3D butterflies.Sold Out
From the Artist:
''This piece is inspired by three varieties of butterflies, with the work featuring hours of digital hand painting, to further enhance the original watercolour painting. The inspiration for this piece came from my desire to make use of my growing archive of butterflies, which I have been working tirelessly on with the Natural History Museum in London. This is a long term project which has been months and months in the making. No other artist will have the butterflies I photographed and archived, making the work truly special.
You may notice patterns and forms across the piece which belong to each butterfly. The more you look at the work, the more you will see! The butterflies, I really feel compliment and further enhance the freedom that this piece brings. I was drawn to use the blue morpho butterflies as they are truly magical and are organically becoming a trademark in my work. I have also used the helena butterfly, tiger moth and peacock butterfly, of which you may notice the patterns used.
After the digital editing, I then had the prints made on a textured, archival and matte watercolour fine art paper. To finish the piece off, each work comes with 4 handcrafted 3D butterflies - Adding another element of energy. Each piece also has finely detailed areas of gold shimmering paint which softly reflect the light.
The name "Utopia'' I felt fit perfectly, as my two favourite subjects have been combined together but on another level! I feel my professional artistic journey is rapidly evolving and I wanted to create this piece to capture the complexity of my thoughts but at the same time maintain simplicity.
I hope this piece will hang proudly and bring you as much joy as it has for me creating it.''
