10′ x 10′ Acrylic on Plywood
This painting was created at the Georgetown Harbor on June 14, 2012 for the Art Metamorphosis Project which was hosted by Art Soiree. I began the mural around noon and finished close to midnight of the same day. A time-lapse video of the piece can be found on YouTube. The video and music created was produced Tom Delay Beats.
Papilionoidea focuses on the abstract idea of transformation. I wanted to incorporate the butterfly but did not want to overwhelm the idea with just a butterfly. The desire was to be emblematic. I brought in the tree of life to signify the rebirth of life even when all looks lost.
