This is was a work created for an invitational exhibition at the
Vancouver East Cultural Centre titled "Ode to Jack" (Shadbolt). The
theme of the show was Shadbolt's butterfly series. I was just beginning
to play with cut gemstones at the time, and evolved a process of
photographing them, then drawing and painting on the photographic prints.
A few other ideas coalesced along the way, resulting in this work.
