I love the whimsical color of the butterflies exploding out of these pics

Just to carry on my theme of WHIMSY I thought I’d include a few pieces from Paul Villinski. Another example of an artist with a great name to boot (recall Robert Sly, Thaddeus Wolfe, Cindy Flook). Villinski takes things like old tin cans and records and cuts them up (actually quite hard to do if you’ve tried) into butterflies. He pairs the beautiful bright butterflies with old war paraphernalia. Perhaps a comment on how man made objects and ideas fizzle away while mother natures endures.

A very helpful commenter Little Green Pixie has mentioned that these works have similar themes to the WW1 book ‘I never saw another butterfly’. Here’s the Wikipedia link if your interested.
