Dr Who and the Attack of the Beautiful Butterflies
In Dr. Who and the Attack of the Beautiful Butterflies, Alex stands nude defiantly and triumphantly. He is growing a set of enormous wings, supported by a gathering of other butterflies. While working on the piece, I came across an image of the sunset on the Brooklyn Bridge. It completed the work and turned Alex into a colossus towering over the city.
This is a large piece that is a digital/painting hybrid. The collage features a nude male figure from an artist’s anatomy collection, old chromolithographs of butterflies, and the Brooklyn Bridge by Gavin Spear from Unsplash. This surreal landscape is like the ones that appear in my dreams where the logic is somehow hidden and the meaning is elusive.
