Butterfly features image-based works that aim to cope with the acceptance of loss within the presence of love. In an acceptance driven culture, where value is placed on perfection and monetary desires, our fear of losing our own autonomy is heightened, and submitting to love becomes a threat. We risk staying present if we succumb to our fears, finding it easier to remember pain than remembering love.
