Listing Information
An art installation by the conceptional artist Michael Olsen.
Michael describes his work and inspiration " I've always been fascinated by nature and in particular butterflies. To me, there is something captivating about that moment when a butterfly stops to let an onlooker admire its form. Using this as my stimulus I wanted to see if I could create something that was both contemporary and visually stimulating, which could be displayed on the wall in the home. I decided to create a flight of butterflies. I love the idea of bringing nature indoors and made a conscious decision to make a piece large enough and intricate enough to be looked at daily, but always offer something new to see.
For these installations I work with hand painted feather butterflies which are meticulously arranged as if floating on the wall and encased in simple acrylic boxes".
Michael Olsen.
Perhaps more through life circumstance than passion, I spent the most part of my 70 years making things simply for pleasure or for practical purposes. More recently I’ve been able to let my artistic impulses develop through my work.
I enjoy the simple, beautiful things life has to offer: love; family; the outdoors (cycling through it); music (better heard through a needle); and moments in time spent happily with others or alone – all of which, I think, inspire me to try to make beautiful things to enjoy.

Each work is unique, and signed, numbered with the number of butterflies inclosed.
