We know the issues of our environment are crucial.
And one of our many problems is human development erasing animal's habitats and therefore threatening the survival of many species.
I thought it would be interesting to take this idea of the world getting smaller to the limit. By creating new architecture from photos of buildings from different cultures and adding a species of animal that does not belong,
I hope to create ( if not a realistic) a thought provoking effect.

I used the butterfly to look at movement and how when put in different environments, can affect the entire feeling of the painting; for example the delicate butterfly existing in the concrete city.
I also thought it would be interesting to use photo transfer which gives a different sense of reality than what the brush can do.
Butterflies are a great vehicle for colour and always seem to be on the move.
Movement and colour…two things I love to paint.
