Artist's Description

It’s all about art and inspiration.
In my series of magical realist drawings, “Black Butterfly: The Muse,” the ethereal butterfly represents the artist’s muse and subjects are always those who are involved in the creative arts. In the summer of 2008, I had an unusual amount of butterfly sightings, especially black varieties. These occurred just as I was going through a burst of artistic creativity. I wrote my first poem in decades, about the encounters as metaphoric of the artist’s muse and began to include butterflies in a series of charcoal drawings executed on heavy weight frosted Mylar drafting film.

These drawings are meant to be noble representations of individual subjects, and also illustrative of the best aspects of our time: bringing together a wealth of influences, a recognition of art history, and a contemporary attitude, to create images that are of the moment, but that hopefully will also remain relevant in the future.
