Installation: Paper, Manipulated on Paper.
"Monarch" is constructed of digitally printed maps of North & South America applied onto paper butterflies.
Butterflies are symbolic of rebirth, change, and beauty. The juxtaposition between maps of the Americas and butterflies represents an idea of a metamorphosis of countries and how they evolve.
This piece was inspired in part by the great Monarch butterfly migration to Mexico. Each year millions of butterflies migrate to Mexico from as far as Canada to escape the harsh winters.
