Original, one-of-a-kind collage created with illustrations, photography and found objects. Hand-cut into hundreds of flowers and butterflies, coated in glass glitter and assembled into 3-dimensional artwork on iridescent acrylic. Framed in acrylic shadow box.
Part of my "Imagine" series. This piece is inspired by the inherent beauty in the natural and commercial world and explores the themes of beauty and consumerism and how we internalize the myriad of visual and thematic messages we receive on a daily basis.
Comprised of hundreds of hand-cut flowers from my original collage work, created from illustrations, photography, magazine clippings, clothing tags, found paper, ink, pastels, butterflies and more. Coated in gut glass glitter and backed with shimmery iridescent acrylic.
