This is a postcard created specifically for a postcard swap I am participating in with Mayparis of Youtube. She sent me a lovely postcard of Lamp-posts in Love – a sculpture in Kiev, Ukraine.
The postcard has the base ink directly on it, whereas the butterflies were drawn and inked onto acrylic paper, cut out and attached onto the postcard.
Close up details:
Latest canvas commission.
Until the Future, acrylic ink,text image transfer, ink stamp, acrylic paint, cut paper on canvas, 59.4 x 42cm
The person who commissioned the piece wanted it focused around the colours of black and teal and various states of melting butterflies- representing the past, present and future.
I aged the look of he canvas and added various types of texts in the background- taken from my own scans of vintage books.
To bring the image and concepts together I also added the image of a clock face and a compass windrose to literally represent both time and direction.
