I used to be then left with over 800 butterflies and needed to share them with the world
After the lack of my grandmother one month in the past, for no cause in any respect, besides the truth that I appreciated butterflies, I began hand slicing paper printed ones.
In a method, this was very therapeutic. Throughout this course of, I used to be free to cry, smile and keep in mind each second shared together with her. I used to be then left with over 800 butterflies and needed to share them with the world.
I’ve opened my studio final December right here in my hometown Larnaka, Cyprus and had the thought to make use of them as a part of my new Idea Window show in reminiscence of her, my grandfather (2015) and my father (1994). In my method, this was made to protect their legacy and if it wasn’t for them I might by no means be what I’m right now.
Every particular person butterfly is scanned, printed on high quality paper, hand reduce, formed and repainted earlier than its positioned. Following that, I continued experimenting with numerous compositions and placements reminiscent of Glass Domes, Picket Bins, and Frames. That is the results of one month’s work.
Thanks, dad, granddad, and yiayia for the whole lot. That is for you.
