Acrylic & Gold Leaf on Varnished Card
1200 × 1200 mm
This is an installation of approximately 200 individual hand-painted butterflies which can either be installed directly onto a wall, or onto a custom-made round board, which is sold separately for $290.
The butterflies come in a box with gold pins, museum wax and detailed instructions for installation.
Anna Stichbury was born in Wellington in 1974. She attended Wellington School of Design and graduated with a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Textiles. Still living in Wellington, Stichbury paints full-time from her home studio.
Stichbury’s contemporary mixed-media paintings are bold and feature intense hues and rich surfaces. Gold leaf has become a regular feature in her work along with 'actual elements' such as black sand from our beautiful North Island beaches.
