'Butterfly to Rio' 2013
The focal point of this brooch is an holographic image of a butterfly. Framing this image are eight pieces of blue tinted cut mirror as well as three pieces of iridescent blue polished shell and two pieces of tubular opaque blue glass. Above the central image sits a re-imagined souvenir from Rio de Janeiro which is orange, green and blue. All of these pieces are set into a rich blue resin which is sprinkled with iridescent green/blue glitter. The back is an aqua resin
Andrew's use of colours gives the piece an aquatic and equatorial feel combined with the holographic butterfly it feels as the piece is fluttering towards the tropical land of Brazil.
Holographs often feature from time to time in Andrew's work and create a feeling of movement adding another layer of uniqueness and fun to Andrews pieces .
