Blái Fíllinn - Mcqueen Skull - Original Artwork 2021


The story behind the artwork

Inspired in part by the British fashion designer, Alexander McQueen, and by the traditional Mexican beaded skulls, this a stunning 3D collage that has been created using layer upon layer of vibrant and colourful butterfly wings. Cobalt blue assaults the senses, with pops of acid green and strawberry pink. This is a palette that resounds with energy, depicting the life that was once felt within these bones, while the Swallowtail butterfly wing tips suggest that at any moment, this anatomical structure could take off into the unknown skies above.
