Butterflies is finally finished and posted, I got sore fingers from pushing in steel pins, but it done, which is the main thing.
“Butterflies” Is a sculptural piece of work, in which the artist makes a comment about the Life, and death of Michael Jackson.
The 50 Origami Butterflies represent a life, which has been collected like a butterfly collection and preserved to be viewed and looked at.
The collection of butterflies inside the frame are all made from reclaimed paper, mostly insides of envelope, the do not add up to the sum of the man, collecting them cannot bring the magic of the man alive.
The single white butterfly outside, is made from a sheet of Fabriano paper, it represents the soul of Michael Jackson, which cannot be collected and is finally free.
“Butterflies” was also the Song the artist wanted to produce a Music Video for, it is hoped that one day this might happen.
I always wanted to make work, which would challenge me as an Artist, this work is conceptual, but I hope it is also accessible to the viewer also.
