The White Room
The bugs and butterflies are flying freely in this room.
The two works in this room are:
Samurai Beetles: installation of 110 acid etched brass beetles
Beetles and bugs are beautiful but also a little bit scary. One might be ok but lots definitely not ok. These beetles are warriors, wearing their battle patterns with pride and taking over this space.
An Apocalypse of Butterflies: 57 hand cut topographical Maps of Great Britain, pins
The summer of 2011 was a terrible summer in the UK, it rained a lot. It was an apocalypse for butterflies. I imagined a flock that got away and they named themselves An Apocalypse as a badge of honour of what they survived.
Next up the red room.
