Portfolio > Butterfly Series

The butterfly is my metaphor for the all living things endangered by human interventions and climate change. My objective in these paintings is to capture their weightlessness, bright flashing color, whimsical flight, distinctive markings, and juxtapose these qualities with the dark peril of their current existence. My intent is to evoke concern for these delicate creatures with super powers that are losing their habitat and declining at a drastic rate. Macro views with textural elements bring the viewer in closer. In my role as an artist I feel I can capture some emotional truths to bring about change in how we view our interconnections with all living things.
