This piece of art by Joe Silcott is titled Coronet; an original work set in a white box frame. Like much of the art by Joe Silcott this is a 3d piece using gilded paper, cut out by hand in the shape of butterflies, sewn into the frame and arranged in a circle formation.
He says “I really enjoy the process of collage, layering and texturing various elements from disparate sources and combining these to create a cohesive whole. I use and recycle imagery taken from advertising as well as the rhythm and patterns of found imagery and wrapping papers which I then cut up to create a newly ordered image. As well as their obvious natural beauty, I agree with the Eastern belief of butterflies as bringers of joy and being the essence of happiness.”
The striking hand cut and gilded butterflies in this piece are set in a white box frame. This work by Joe Silcott is an original piece of art. Joe’s inspiration for his recent work comes primarily from Nature and in particular butterflies, moths and the folklore and mythology surrounding these specific insects, to produce work with a narrative quality. He says “I like the school of thought that butterflies represent the soul, and also the parallels drawn between their life cycle and that of the life, death and resurrection of Christ. I tend to work in series and as well as interpreting butterfly myth and folklore”
