"Papillon Noir" Painting by Artist Florian Roeper

US$36,000

About

The large scale, pop art-influenced painting, "Papillon Noir", pokes at the problematic relationship between humans and nature. Trapped within the "ceiling" of a butterflies wings, balloons suggest a sense of doom and gloom, the end of the party. Yet the painting also conveys optimism in it's airy and lighthearted representation of a butterfly. Finished in copper leaf, black lacquer and high gloss epoxy resin on laser-cut wood. "Papillon Noir" is part of Roeper's new High as a Kite Series, a selection of mixed-media paintings reflecting on the nature and pursuit of dreams, and the inherent challenges in achieving them. The works consist of appealing and novel imagery, butterflies, balloons and halos, grounded or contorted by reality. Pared down compositionally, the pieces make use of explicit graphics as visual punchline.
