'MONARCH CLOUD BURST'
OIL ON CANVAS
30" X 48" INCHES

'MONARCH CLOUD BURST' PUTS IN FOCUS A CALIFORNIAN MONARCH BUTTERFLY THAT DOMINATES THE PICTURE PLANE. IT'S AS IF THE SUDDEN IMPACT OF THE BUTTERFLY AS A REVELATION IN SPACE AND METAPHORIC TIME, ALLUDES TO A FRACTURE AND ARREST OF A COSMIC INTERLUDE. THE POETICS OF A CELESTIAL MULTIVERSE, EXPRESSED BY THE INHERENT TRANSFORMATIVE SYMBOLISM EVOKED BY THE BUTTERFLY, SUGGETS A TRANSCENDENTAL STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS.

THIS WORK FORMS PART OF THE 'BUTTERFLY NEBULA' SERIES, AN ONGOING EXPLORATION OF MULTIPLE THEMES CONSIDERING NATURE, MYTH, MYSTICISM AND METAPHYSICS.
