The artwork represents the artist’s childhood and his relationship with imagination. He was constrained as a young boy due to severe learning difficulties and an inability to communicate. He had no support to understand or overcome the challenge. He was isolated, alone, with minimal opportunity to grow with others. In his pain, he discovered his imagination and cultivated it with action and love to now create his own unique form of communication through art. For us, the butterflies appear as shadows.
DESCRIPTION - As a child, I did not know what tomorrow was, then overnight. I became an expert. I soon visualised years and even lifetimes. Visioning was fun in the beginning but soon became troublesome as I no longer was inside today. Now I have no life beyond this moment. My only reality is the butterfly, my imagination.
