ABOUT THE ARTWORK
The dungeon of the Chateau de Champlatreaux, France, sets the stage for ‘Nouveau Papillon,’ or ‘new butterfly’, an eerie and intricate surrealistic full length portrait of a woman seemingly metamorphosing into a butterfly - or vice versa. Fused with elements from Paris’s Natural History Museum, the most striking part of the image may be the headpiece arranged from the body of the insect, enveloping the model’s head to become a form of macabre fashion accessory. Only shards of its wings protrude, as if the rest had been ripped off to make the fan held in her hand.
