16 x 20 Colure


The Great Orange Tip or Hebomioa glaucippe is one of the largest species in the family Pieridae, also known as Whites and Sulphers. The striking, day-glo orange tips probably help the butterfly to appear distasteful or poisonous, though it is not. In Colure, as in the Solar Ellipse, the radical three- dimensionality of the butterflies’ positioning stands in stark contrast to the usual flat, traditional presentation while the overtly juxtaposed tips combine to create a pinwheel-esque shape that evokes the drama of an arcane saw blade.
