The Butterfly Effect
The Butterfly Effect refers to the theory in which a small change in the environment can result in a large scale event in a later state or location.
The butterfly in this piece appears to be imbued by the magical effect of the black diamond dust as it literally escapes the confines of its frame. The monarch butterfly is truly an iconic butterfly in the Americas that seasonally travels from Mexico all the way to Canada, one can only wonder what effect the flutter of its wings may bring to us in the future.
This piece can also easily be referenced to Burton’s re-emergence from his recent battle with cancer. Just as the butterfly undertakes a huge transformation, so Burton’s artwork is now instilled with even more life and vibrancy.
Butterfly Effect by Burton Morris Framed
Created in 2015, on Somerset Satin 410 gsm paper, these silk screen prints were individually hand-made, each only being a small edition consisting of 80 prints.
Diamond dust was used on these new prints in order to set them apart from previous editions. Morris chose three strong and easily recognizable images, two of which exemplify Americana Pop art today.
Coriander Studio was selected and given the task of creating these three important new editions being one of the most established and prestigious printers for artists, publishers and museums alike of edition prints in Europe.
The welcoming Lady Liberty, the migrating Monarch butterfly and the jovial gorilla are all pieces that are intended to open a fresh new chapter in the highly popular Pop art movement
