One of a series of paintings inspired by the passing of my mother in 2012. The butterfly symbolises change and transformation – in entering a cocoon, a caterpillar must let everything he has ever known be left behind, and trust in a life filled with new possibilities and a whole new way of living. The ‘light’ in this piece represents our ongoing search for fulfilment and spiritual well-being.
I sign my work ‘Unity’ a name I also use when dancing – unity of self, and my hope for the world around me. This piece is signed at the bottom of the canvas frame, which is 3cm thick.
