Fly of a Copper Butterfly

The sculpture called Fly of a Copper Butterfly stands out for its chromatic vigor, generated by the complementary colors red and green, movingly and elegantly laid on the solar yellow background. The vibrant movement punctuated by touches of black induces the viewer the idea of the elegant flight of a butterfly with its wings bathed in light. The gradual decomposition of the dots of color, in a perfect metamorphosis, reflects the feeling of fragility and ephemerality. The undulating, discreet line suggests flight, in an exacerbated radiography of a tiny universe, grand in realization.
