The work of Kristjana S Williams is inspired, in her own words, by ‘the symmetry in all things living’. Her prints work with processes of layering, building the present onto the past and incorporating the grandeur of the natural world to create compelling and arresting imagery. ‘Hvit Ljosabox Gold Foil’, part of a series of butterfly prints that Williams has produced, exemplifies these concurrent themes.
The print is dominated by a large, colourful butterfly made up from smaller butterflies wings and birds plumage, to create a truly striking aesthetic. The image is set onto a disc of delicate hand-laid gold leaf which sits beautifully against the soft palette that Williams has used for the butterfly wings. Ethereal and other-worldly, this stunning print is captivating in its use of electric colour and intense detail. This print is signed and numbered by the artist.
