This piece has definitely been a labour of love, looking back on the blog I started cutting out butterflies in April so three months have passed by! It’s all been worth it, call me mad but I’ve found the whole process very therapeutic. Stretching the paper, carefully cutting out the wings, sticking with Japanese Nori paste, tracing the positioning to get a perfect mirror image. To those who know me this method of working will come as no surprise – I’m a perfectionist! I hope that whoever looks at this blog enjoys looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it. As well as selling it as a one off collage I will be producing a limited edition print run, info to follow soon.

Just the body to go and this little fella will be ready to take flight!

I’m a lazy blogger…

But I’ve been busy with lots of other things including a new piece of work which you can see developing below. I’ve spent hours, well weeks cutting out butterflies to make a butterfly out of wings. It’s starting to take shape but there is still quite a way to go…

Peril in the Petunias

March 26, 2009

It’s been very busy here at Elphick’s after the feature in Elle Deco. It’s great to know that more people are becoming aware of Elphick’s (the gallery/shop) and that we are the UK retailer of Charley Harper prints.

‘Upside Downside’ and ‘Gregarious Grosbeaks’ seem to be the firm favourites at the moment but I thought I would post an image of one of the NEW lithographs we have in stock. Surprise surprise I have opted for a print that doesn’t feature a bird, it does however feature my second obsession…flowers. ‘Peril in the Petunias’, Paper Size 38.7cm x 31cm, Image Size 30cm x 23.5cm. £40 + postage.

Order your print here and we will arrange delivery straight to your door.
