Sculptural Wall Art ‘Yin and Yang – Find Your Wings’ By Amanda Deadman
Amanda has always loved the Yin and Yang symbol which forms the basis of this piece of sculptural wall art. She is inspired by light and dark, day and night, good and evil. These concepts originate from ancient Chinese philosophy whereby opposite forces are seen as interconnected and counterbalancing.
Three sizes of butterflies were drawn onto watercolour paper and painted with swirling lines in turquoise and orange – colours that complement each other beautifully. All of the right-hand wings are painted in metallic silver and metallic copper watercolour, so that they add extra reflective texture when mounted at different angles.
Each butterfly is hand cut and arranged in the Yin and Yang symbol. The result is a vibrant and highly textured turquoise and orange modern relief design, revealing individual butterflies on closer inspection. Different shadows are cast, and light is reflected from the metallic paint on the up-turned wings depending on the direction of the light.
This sculpture wall art is simply dazzling and will enliven any room in your home.
N.B. The image shown is an example of the series. Amanda makes each individual piece by hand, therefore every one is unique and will vary slightly from the one shown.
The painting is framed in a white glazed (Perspex) deep box frame.
