The Butterfly Eaters by Gregory-Fricker The Butterfly Eaters by Gregory-Fricker
Acrylic on canvas
18x24

Original has been professionally framed and includes the frame with sale of the original.

This picture is in allegory and depicts selfishness hidden within the guise of "a love for beauty". Sometimes it is easy for an appreciation of beauty to be corrupted and eclipsed by a hunger to posses, or fear that another may posses, leading to the destruction of the very same thing initially revered.

This work has some elements that are highly suggestive of work by Brett Whitely, one of my favourite artists of all time. I really enjoy the suggestion of movement created by the paint. I agree with lydiakitten: fantastic colour combinations, composition is great and the work is a very enjoyable visual experience.
