  • About this work of Art

    Corolla Burst III by Nick Jeffrey.
    Description: Farmed butterflies on specialist mirror effect, framed in Perspex.
    Dimensions: 50x50x10cm

    The artwork combines a mixture of materials carefully chosen to suit the subject and often taken from source such as local hard and soft wood, locally bred butterflies and other insects, line caught fish, and locally sourced flora; all ultimately combined with Perspex, resin, mirrors, and or painted backgrounds to deliver the work its contemporary and traditional context.

    Each of the works demands immense care and patience. With painstaking attention the butterflies’ wings are relaxed open – prepared and carefully set in different wing spans – a technique which requires dexterity and skill, and which has taken several years to master. Following the tradition of generations of entomologists before him, Nick keeps a meticulous record of all his butterflies and has accumulated a vast photographic catalogue of the species he has worked with.

    Nick Jeffrey has purposefully sourced ethical butterfly breeders, especially those in the developing world, and embarks on collaborations considered to ensure that the specimens used provide incomes to local communities, and help to protect the environment through the conservation of their habitats.
