Description: The micro turns macro as we zoom the lens in on the intricate details of the interior of a Blue Morpho butterfly wing. The Artist creates rich texture and movement swirling caramel, rose, and rich mahogany with mesmerizing circles of yellow ochre.
This piece evokes a sense of comfort much like the feeling of cozying up with a hot cup of green tea under a plush blanket in front of a wood-burning stove.
Interior Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing is part of a collection of works by self-taught artist Bridget Kilgallon. Through her art, she attempts to communicate how we transmute times of trauma and loss into creative expression. Her works explore the polarity between beauty and darkness through the use of multi-media techniques that reach beyond the canvas. An uncomplicated motif, the butterfly integrates deep meaning with sublime references to the subconscious intuition and ancient symbolism.
Note: This original piece is already taken, as it was a gift to my good friend and fellow artist Ivana. When you purchase this item a recreation of the original will be painted just for you. Some slight differences may exist (as is the nature of a one-of-a-kind hand-painted item) however its essential nature will remain the same. Upon request, this painting can also be commissioned on a larger 16" x 19.75" canvas with no additional charge.
