Inspirations & Influences:
space + time + street art + color + history + personal experiences with butterflies
And they fell through the wind
To my feet down below | And sad as it was
I was relieved to know
I WUZ HERE

The story of BUTTERFLIES...
Partly inspired by chaos theory and the butterfly effect, Butterflies have roots in my early childhood which gave life to my contemplations, and ultimately this winged body of work. As with all my makings, they are rich with symbolism and have an emotional foundation upon which the intellectual ideas are erected. Colors, numbers, and cultures are of great significance here. Ultimately, 999 butterflies will come to life creating a dialogue regarding time, vibration, energy, and evolution. That said, since it is in its relatively early stages of development, the deeper patterns have yet to emerge. This series will grow old with me as my pencil could barely keep up with the flow of my mind.
