Butterfly Wings

IMG_20150430_152403

As the degree show draws closer, I’m experimenting with adding (ethically sourced) butterfly wings to various drawings and collages.

For my degree piece I am planning a 2D curiosity cabinet, which will have drawings, paintings and collages pinned to a wall. Together, these pieces will work together to make the viewer question what is real and what isn’t, as well as considering the implications of some of the creatures pictured.

Genetic engineering and hybrids are relatively common nowadays, but few people understand or care about the consequences of mutation and hybridisation. This is an issue my work hopes to make people consider.
