‘Downside up’ is a grand artwork embodying the concept of slipping into the unknown as if the rug has been pulled from under your feet – so to speak.
I chose to create this artwork in a large scale format to help the viewer get the sense of falling.
The symbolic butterflies flit around the woman giving the sensation of movement and air.
The artwork is painted in oils.
I have also used a pearl essence effect in the butterfly wings that transforms in the light.
