Beyond Mount Fuji

4 panels of 850 x 600mm
Paining, butterflies, gold leaf, gesso on board, framed in Perspex

‘Sakura’ (cherry trees in blossom) painting on gilded gesso and board with mounted butterflies adding a third dimension to the scene. Inspired by the Tsunami triggering ‘disaster’ (a word for opportunity in Japanese) in Japan. The painting of spring blossom and the scene sprung with new life in free flying butterfly species in the shape of a breaking wave signalling the opportunity for a new beginning after the catastrophe beyond Mt Fuji.
