Description: The micro turns macro as we zoom the lens in on the intricate details of a Yellow Swallowtail butterfly wing. The Artist creates rich texture and movement by contrasting sunny yellow, slate blue, and rich black with an unexpected burst of fire orange.
This piece evokes a sense of pure joy and happiness much like the feeling of running through a grassy meadow under the warmth of the summer sun.
Yellow Swallowtail 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 mother. 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 it's essential nature will remain the same.
