Details, details, details

Here are some details from five of my recent paper cuttings. These organic 'clumps' contain a variety of life. The most identifiable being butterflies. Are the butterflies the king of the clumps or are they trapped in these organic webs. These paper cut outs are about a shadowy world full of secrets and surprises.


Is this butterfly trapped?


The shadow shows the real complexity of these paper cutouts


 There are bubbles in there too.


A detail from of the work featured in my previous post, Pink Mist. Can you spot the butterfly in the shadow?

WOW, WOW, all I can articulate is wow. I'm a big fan of Patrick Gannon; he sent me to your site...love butterflies too! WOW!

And, by the by, the butterflies aren't trapped, they are just experts at the art of camouflage. Again, really gorgeous, ingenious work!
