I’ve been working on this for the better part of a year, and I think I’m finally finished. It took me more than a week just to get her hung properly. She insisted that she wanted to be in the corner of the studio. It wasn’t until I photographed her that I understood why. I think it’s fitting that something called “butterfly soup” should have ghostly wings:
Here she is with the light turned off:
Someone asked how much she weighs. The answer is: not very much, she’s mostly air. She may, in fact, weigh less than the chain she’s hanging from. I’d be surprised if the chain and the sculpture together added up to even 10 pounds.
You can see her in person next Friday, August 1st, at my next open studio.
