Michael Olsen

For Michael there is something captivating about that moment when a butterfly stops to let an onlooker admire it's form. He also admires the way that the Victorians used glass domes to display cherished objects and create eye-catching displays of nature's treasures. Using this as his stimulus he decided to see if he could create something both contemporary and beautiful that could be displayed on the wall in the home. He decided to create a flight of butterflies.

Michael made a conscious decision to make pieces large and intricate enough to be looked at daily, but to always offer something new to see, working with hand painted feather butterflies which are meticulously arranged as if floating on the wall and encased in simple acrylic boxes.

Butterfly installations are available in sizes

100 x 100cm  £2,875     and     75 x 75cm  £2,275
