‘Butterfly’ is my attempt to visualise the three virtues of truth, beauty and goodness, otherwise known as the Transcendentals or Platonic Triad. Since ancient times these concepts have been thought to be of profound importance, the bedrock of what gives our lives value and meaning and I felt this was, therefore, a daunting and worthwhile challenge. The subtext in this piece is environmental. I have written a short article about this project which you can read here.
It has been said that artists often seek to create order from chaos. Recent times have been nothing if not chaotic. In ‘Butterfly’ I’m trying to visualise a beautiful reconciliation, a balancing and harmonising of our currently fraught and destructive relationship with the flora and fauna of this beautiful and fragile planet.
