‘Butterfly Blue’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Rose Corcoran. Printed onto Somerset Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 10 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Rose Corcoran is a contemporary fine artist, whose work centres around the power of the animal kingdom. For Corcoran, art serves a purpose: her beautiful depictions of exotic beasts both represent their strength and magnificence, as well as their vulnerability, as increasingly endangered species face the threat of extinction.
‘Butterfly Blue’ depicts a delicate butterfly, minimally yet strikingly composed to dominate the print. In strokes of black, Corcoran has brilliantly captured every gossamer detail on each wing - from the slightest vein to the softest edging - splashing vibrant blue pigment at the centre of the insect in perfect symmetry, for breathtaking dynamism and compelling visual prowess.
