Gesso, glaz and oil paint on mdf and Asian butterfly prepared in gesso glaze and oil paint, 127cm x 5cm x 83cm

The perpetual movement of celestial gardens ceased. Great cumulus became motionless and no more it sailed stately; no more fleeting shadows, no more petals blowing on the warm breeze, just, pure white radiance.¹

The sensual properties of paint and painting are united with tales of fictional erotic mythologies, surrealist poetry and classical painting, making manifest objects of seduction. Teetering on edge of sickly sweet the work exudes a make-believe feeling, a feeling of something deliciously wicked and indulgent.
