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

'ULYSSES CLOUD BURST' DEPICTS THE IRIDESCENT BLUE ULYSSES BUTTERFLY CENTRAL TO THE PICTURE PLANE. PAIRED WITH THE PAINTING OF THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY, THESE WORKS SUGGEST A CLOUD BURST EFFECT, SYMBOLISED BY THE FLUTTERING TRANSFORMATIVE POWER A BUTTERFLY EMBODIES IN NATURE AND WITHIN OUR HUMAN SPIRIT.

AS A TOTEMIC POWER ANIMAL SYMBOL THE POETICS OF THE BUTTERFLY FORM OBVIOUS TRANSCENDENTAL EVOCATIONS THAT PERTAIN TO MULTI-VARIOUS INTERPRETATIONS. THE ULYSSES AND MONARCH BUTTERFLIES FORM PART OF THE 'BUTTERFLY NEBULA' CYCLE OF WORKS EXPLORING CELESTIAL MANIFESTATIONS ATUNED TO OBSERVED PHENOMENA FORMING SYNERGY AND SYNTHESIS BETWEEN PERCIEVED SPHERES OF MATTER AND MEANING.
