Artist Statement

Just as the butterfly metamorphose through its life, from the beginning travelling as a caterpillar then the miraculous creation turning into a chrysalis continuing with the unique transformation and true-life purpose to become a majestical butterfly. We too as humans’ metamorphose through life from birth, to childhood, to adolescence, to adulthood. Each and every one of us has an individual and tempestuous journey. 

The colours, tones, textures and strokes utilised reflect the depth and meaning of the trials and tribulations which are expressed in the journey of the butterfly’s life throughout this painting. The luminosity and radiance from the centre point of the painting creates a feeling of tranquillity and peacefulness along with the release of one’s inner self and deeper thoughts. The artist’s touch, applying paint to brush represents wonder and appreciation for the beauty of the world that surrounds us.

The metamorphosis of the butterfly goes hand in hand with the artist’s contemporary expressionistic style; First is the painter’s interpretation, followed by the viewers.
