The butterfly is a deep symbol of life cycles. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, transformation, hope, and love. In this piece called ‘Infatuation’ it is just the butterfly wings that are presented. Being the red wings of the Peacock Butterfly the artist feels these wings are a powerful symbol for love and passion, being a thing of beauty and yet so fragile. The body of the butterfly has disappeared into the ether – which is hinted at with the upward drips. This suggests the plight of the butterfly, finding it harder and harder to survive with loss of habitat due to man.
