Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, ink, varnish, Paper on Canvas, Paper.

The upward swirl of butterflies embodies energy, vitality, positivity, and joy. The butterflies are set to a dark prussian blue, copper and crimson background. The colour palette is bold and vibrant, without being garish.

Lily has developed a unique way of working, using her own paintings as collage material on a canvas. Butterflies are meticulously painted, reproduced, and cut, ready to use on a canvas. The background is painted with acrylics. The use of collage allows the freedom to play with the composition in a way which would otherwise be impossible, allowing quick changes until a design is settled upon. When the butterflies are fixed in place, washes of ink have been applied. Finally, a glossy varnish enhances color, adds protection, and offers an opulent shine. Please note there is some surface texture to this canvas from the collage, paints, and varnish.

Nature is common to all of Lily's work, however she would never claim to offer gritty realism. Lily describes it more like focusing on an aspect of its beauty and running with it, seeing where it can be taken. Simplicity is key, which to Lily means creating something which can hopefully offer pleasure and enjoyment.

Deep-edge canvas stretched over wooden frame, making framing unnecessary.
