I am fascinated with the concept of negative and positive space as equal qualities which therefore work together to form a whole; that the dark space between galaxies is not empty. What actually happens between the stages of caterpillar to moth? I am inspired by the natural world and influenced by a variety of Artists in all genres, and as Georgia O’Keeffe once said: “Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.” And as the composer John Cage once said: “There is no such thing as silence.”
Butterflies are also a symbol of mystery and stories and images of butterflies are found in many folklores. For example: Aristotle gave the butterfly the name psyche, the Greek word for soul.
