Silk|Butterfly Season

Silk Scarf- 65cm x 65cm, 2018

Three diagonal stretches of newsprint depict three significantly different topics: War, with clippings from articles written during the early 20th Century when war became so prevalent in Europe they forgot who they were fighting against; Freedom, featuring articles focusing on the release of social activist Nelson Mandela following his twenty-seven year imprisonment; and Peace, a presentation of a variety of clippings surrounding treaties, art, and peace-efforts.

A dismantled portrait of a woman rife with flowers, diamonds, and butterflies symbolizes the opening up of the mind, with vibrant blocks of yellow and fuschia reminding us that creativity bursts.
