Description

Although we do have sitings of these beautiful butterflies in the UK, I haven’t seen one in this country, but this painting reflects a special memory for me, seeing them on my last trip to Cyprus, also my families birth place. 'Swallowtail & Hibiscus' celebrates some of the sights and colours captured in my memory and heart. Hibiscus, oleander and jasmine grow abundantly in Cyprus and Mediterranean. Looking deeper you may just notice the abstract echoes of some Greek graffiti and urban texture I captured while walking through the old town of Limassol, also reflective of some of the islands troubled past.
The swallowtail is a digital painting from my own specimen, digitally collaged with my own collection of urban texture and vintage flora.
The butterfly is hand glazed with varnish and I added diamond dust to add some magic and to capture the magic I feel when I saw these dancing in the Mediterranean evening sun.

Need to know

Pigment print onto German Etching, and mounted onto panel. Hand finished with acrylic glaze, varnish and diamond dust. Framed in a bespoke, hand painted circular wooden frame with hangings included. 60cm diameter.

Butterflies symbolise rebirth and transformation. They have always featured heavily in my art, exploring themes of transformation and fragility in the forms of butterflies. I create small editions or one-of-a-kind pieces. I live life consciously, in appreciation for the smaller details of nature, striving to illuminate aspects of a subject that may go unnoticed. In a frenetic world, nature teaches us harmony and I am compelled to express this message through my art.
