Butterflies in Box frames

Inspired by the collector's habit of preserving a butterfly in a glass case, these are linocut prints with hand-painted tissue beneath the ink, creating a texture reminiscent of a butterfly's wing: the beauty of a butterfly without killing it.

Hand painted tissue is bonded with the thick, soft white Somerset paper beneath the black ink of the lino. The tissue extends beyond the lines of the lino print with a soft, torn edge, giving an iridescent surface to the wings.
