I decided to create a piece out of 'Moet et Chandon, Dom Perignion' champagne labels. I photocopied the labels a few times then attempted to create a collage from them. The piece was not going anywhere until I realised that if I mirrored the collage the 2 symetrical half formed butterfly wings. I then photographed the collage and then painstakingly copied the photograph in paint. I then added the Butterfly's body, which is a is a bottle of 'Dom Perigion'. This piece is perhaps for those with expensive tastes. This piece reminds me in parts of some early cubism paintings by Picasso and Braque. It is not in the style of cubism but there is an influence of those collages and the french text on the wings is also reminiscent of that period. I am not sure why the combination of Champagne and the butterfly works, perhaps the elegance of the butterfly matches the sophistication of the drink? The piece is painted in acrylics and I also used an airbrush on some sections.
