NEW PAPILLON SERIES DESPITE THE PAIN - A FIVE-YEAR JOURNEY - NEW PAPILLON: Cocooned Emergence Culmination stages The evolution of perspective from the individual to the cosmic. Five years, five collections to form one snapshot. When the camera moves, the world becomes a large palette of infinite colors, line and geometry. These ‘snapshots’ start off as swabs of earth components; it’s textures, color, patterns and movement and they evolve with every year, adding greater complexity until a final “Creation” series. This collection attempts to reflect the microcosm and macrocosm. The journey does this by mirroring and taking inspiration from two paths. The Monarch butterfly from cocooned (New Papillon Series) migration (Migration Series), mating (Union Series), conception (Conception Series) and offspring (Creation Series). Mirroring my own life from isolation to emergence then from travel (terrain subgroup) and finally to love. The second inspiration mirrors the evolution of the universe from it’s seed state of repose to the early chaos and finally to the life-forming creations. Both paths declare the successful story of creation despite the intensity of the journey. Please see full statement for more info.
