Butterfly Drawings

The first thing that you will notice is a yellow shimmer in the distance, a bit of color hovering in the sky. The building that yesterday was collapsed now is hopeful; its dilapidation impossibly reformed by the butterflies that are lifting it up, giving flight to its loneliness. The angle of their flight is accentuated by the cables they trail behind them, as they fight to drag the structure off with them. They are captured in a moment of emotional architecture, the weight of their burden defining a structure in space. This work explores our emotional relationship to the buildings that surround us, expressing the loneliness, isolation, hope, romance, love and rage that it inflicts upon us and we on it. Initially inspired my Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s 100 Years of Solitude, the butterflies are a physical manifestation of emotion.
