Butterfly Sculptures Made From Recycled Paper

Rebecca J Coles is a paper artist based in the United Kingdom who creates three-dimensional sculptures from a hand drawn and cut assemblage of colorful butterflies from recycled paper. In her use of recycled paper, she is able to dissect small bits of color, imagery and text to form these silhouettes that are later reconstructed and later encased. These sculptures can be composed of anywhere from hundreds or even thousands of butterflies!

“As a paper artist my work currently focuses on the reinvention of entomological cataloguing, display and the assemblage of shapes. I am fascinated with the process by which three-dimensional decorative forms materialise out of flat sheets of paper. By deconstructing various paper ephemera I create unique works of art.” — Rebecca J Coles
