White Lady Swallowtail Butterfly' is a small-scale original sculptural piece from contemporary artist Lene Bladbjerg. Crafted from hand-painted Stanley Knife blades and set into a black gloss frame, the one-off piece is signed and dated by the artist.
Crossing the line from graphic design to fine art, Danish-born artist Lene Bladbjerg’s work is infused with a gently haunting character, a bold type and strong composition dominate the frame. For her butterfly series, Bladbjerg hand paints the blades of a Stanley Knife with intricate and colourful patterns to recreate the wings of a butterfly, mounting them in perfect symmetry within a heavy black frame. The juxtaposition of gossamer wing against sharp metal is brilliantly expressive, and Bladbjerg’s strong graphic touch lends the series inimitable aesthetic power.
